Dr. Youngjin Jung, a partner at Yulchon firm, primarily practices in the areas of antitrust, telecommunications, international trade, and international arbitration and has acquired extensive experience in the information technology, telecommunications and broadcasting, semiconductor, aviation, and chemical industries. Before joining Yulchon in 2005, Dr. Jung worked for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade as Deputy Director of the Multilateral Trade Negotiation Division and European Trade Division. Dr. Jung was also an associate at Steptoe & Johnson LLP in Washington DC, and worked at Lee & Ko in Korea. He advises a number of prominent domestic and international clients, in such areas as global cartel investigations in semiconductor industry and global monopolization cases regarding Microsoft, Intel, and Qualcomm.

Global antitrust enforcement has gained ascendancy in the absence of universal jurisdiction. Various international legal instruments and strategies have been devised to facilitate global enforcement of antitrust law, especially cartel regulations. This paper examines the strength and shortcomings of various international legal instruments for global cartel enforcement through examination of the laws and policies of major antitrust enforcement jurisdictions including the US and EU.
