Competition

Indonesia has introduced important economic laws regulating anti-competitive and monopolistic business practices. The system is being developed quickly by the Indonesian competittion regulator, KPPU, with major investigation being launched both into particular business practices, transactions and broader industry arrangements. Fines and other sanctions are now being issued for contravention of the legislation. This marks a major development for Indonesian business activity. Merger filing is now a threshold consideration for Indonesian M&A transactions.

We advise both international and domestic  clients on the impact of these new competition laws on their existing operations and activities in Indonesia to ensure their compliance. We also regularly advise clients on the impact of these laws on the structuring of proposed mergers and acquisitions and any other potential business activities.
