Overview:

The Department of Justice Antitrust Division recently announced notable substantive updates to its Corporate Leniency Program which signals heightened crackdown on antitrust violators. To ensure robust cartel enforcement, the Division and Congress also proposed policy changes concerning the scope of who is responsible for reporting, the promptness of reporting, and the obligation to remediate harm and improve compliance practices. These modifications pose hurdles and create new uncertainties among leniency applicants.

With the changing legal landscape, it is critical to be well-versed in laws regulating cartels, particularly the Sherman Antitrust Act and the Federal Trade Commission Act, to avoid legal pitfalls.

Listen as experienced commercial litigator Liang Ding (DeHeng Law Offices) and economist Laurien Gilbert (Cornerstone Research) provide the audience with a comprehensive discussion of the latest cartel enforcement trends and developments. Speakers, among other things, will also offer strategies and best practices to avoid legal risks.

Key topics include:

  • Collusion and Cartel: Key Enforcement Developments
  • Recent Updates to the DOJ Antitrust Division’s Corporate Leniency Program
  • Addressing Compliance Challenges
  • Best Practices to Avoid Legal Pitfalls
  • What Lies Ahead
