Client Memorandum

Created date


On January 12, 2018, the U.S. Supreme Court agreed to decide whether and to what extent to defer to a foreign government's interpretation of its laws in evaluating whether a foreign company subject to those laws has committed a U.S. antitrust violation in abiding by the law of its home jurisdiction. Any rule articulated by the Supreme Court may have broad ramifications in the antitrust context and beyond, which our authors explore in the full memo.
