Multi-part Series: Navigating the Globe and AMAA

NAVIGATING THE GLOBE: CARTEL ENFORCEMENT AROUND THE WORLD

This groundbreaking multi-part series examines the critical issues for international cartel practitioners in key enforcement jurisdictions around the world. The series will offer practical insights from leading cartel law practitioners in each jurisdiction.

Each chapter will begin with an interactive Powerpoint presentation providing a summary of the jurisdiction's cartel laws, insights into the investigative process and leniency/amnesty programs, key issues relating to penalties, fining, and follow-on civil claims, and a report on recent developments.

Programs to date have included Canada, the UK / Ireland, Japan, the European Union, Korea, Taiwan / Singapore / India, China, Russia / Ukraine, and Brazil, with many other important jurisdictions to come.

ASK ME ABOUT ANYTHING...

  • Ever get the feeling that there are things about cartel practice you’re supposed to know by now, but don’t know who to ask?
  • Would you rather die than stand up and ask a question at the Spring Meeting?

The ABA’s Cartel and Criminal Practice Committee is Here to Get You an Answer to the Question You’ve Always Had, but Have Been Afraid to Ask!

We are pleased to present a new program series, “Ask Me Anything About…”, a forum for Section members to submit substantive and practical questions about antitrust law and cartel practice and receive answers from established leaders in the field.

We invite you to email your questions anonymously to stupidcartelquestions@gmail.com in advance of our next program.

For the most up-to-date information about our upcoming AMAA programming, visit us on Connect, where you will find submitted questions, summaries of past programs and more.
