Government Antitrust Actions and Remedies Involving Foreign Commerce: Procedural and Substantive Limitations

Holmes, William C. | January 1, 1982

In recent years, application of American antitrust laws to activities in foreign commerce has been a source of controversy. In this article, Mr. Holmes addresses criticisms directed at the application of the antirtust laws to commercial activities abroad, and argues that these criticisms, while not without some merit, often fail to recognize the procedural and substantive limitations which have recently been imposed upon government agencies. Mr. Holmes discusses these limitations at length.
