China's Anti-monopoly Law (AML) came into effect in August 2008.

T&D has been involved in a wealth of academic research and projects, sponsored a series of seminars, conducted informative meetings, given speeches, and published articles on matters regarding the AML. Our firm has continued to maintain strong contacts with AML authorities, within research communities and academic circles of the competition law field. Since the AML took effect, it has profound impact on the business operation of major multinational companies in China and makes them to face the challenges brought about by the new law.
