We are excited to introduce PaRR’s 2018 Global Trends Monitor.

Every year, we interview the key competition regulators across the globe to assess the most notable developments and shine a light on enforcement priorities for the coming months.

Whilst 2017 saw a year of surprises, 2018 promises to be the year when a ‘new normal’ takes shape with billion-dollar anti-trust fines no longer having the same shock value as before. Vertical deals that in the past would have received a cursory review are being challenged. Tech giants with cutting-edge patent portfolios have seen their entire business model questioned.
