Compliance & Ethics


The Compliance & Ethics Committee was conceived as a vehicle for unified consideration of the full range of compliance and ethics issues within the scope of the Section's activities. We have emerged as a preeminent resource and network for discussing, evaluating and analyzing antitrust compliance and ethics issues. Our work encompasses the full range of global compliance and ethics issues in the field of antitrust.

Our Committee develops publications and programs to keep antitrust practitioners aware of cutting edge compliance and ethics issues. We emphasize collaboration with other committees and embrace a global perspective, recognizing that compliance and ethics issues are not limited to the United States.

Whatever your area of expertise, we seek your participation and expertise to help us contribute compliance focus and education in all aspects of antitrust practice. We invite your suggestions, comments and involvement at any time, on any subject related to the Committee. Feel free to contact any member of the Committee's Leadership Team:

Co-chairs: F. Joseph Gormley and Alicia Downey

Representative Council Member: Valarie Williams


Thomas Lang, Michele C. Lee, Charles Moore, Deborah Salzberger, Joseph Tipograph

Committee Activities

The Compliance and Ethics Committee presents a variety of live and telephonic programs that focus on a range of issues that face antitrust practitioners. Members can download audio recordings of Committee-sponsored telephonic programs (and others) from the Section's searchable audio library.

We encourage your participation in all of these activities and in others yet to come. Please join the Committee to ensure you receive Committee news in the most timely fashion.
