Advanced Micro Devices, Inc.

O'Melveny has provided global advice to client Advanced Micro Devices in relation to its antitrust battle against Intel, including representing AMD in the complaint filed in US court against Intel—the largest federal court monopolization case pending in the US—and in cases brought against Intel by the European Commission. An important aspect of this global fight has taken place in Korea. O'Melveny worked with local counsel in Korea in an investigation of Intel's practices by the Korea Fair Trade Commission. The KFTC found that Intel had violated Korea's Monopoly Regulation and Fair Trade Act. More specifically, the KFTC found that Intel had coerced exclusive dealing arrangements with two Korean computer manufacturers. The KFTC issued a cease and desist order and imposed a fine on Intel.
