Seung Hyuck Han is a partner at Yulchon and practises primarily in the areas of antitrust, telecommunications and broadcasting. Mr Han has advised various domestic and international clients in cartel, abuse of dominance and merger filing cases. He advised and represented AMD in the KFTC case involving Intel’s abuse of dominance, and Texas Instruments and Broadcom in the KFTC case involving Qualcomm’s abuse of dominance.
Cartels are a surprisingly persistent feature of economic life. The temptation to rig the game in one’s favour is constant, particularly when demand conditions are weak and the product in question is an undifferentiated commodity.
