The Antitrust Division published its annual Spring Newsletter in connection with the ABA Antitrust Spring Meeting. The newsletter can be found here. The newsletter covers highlights of all the Division’s major activities including criminal enforcement. One highlight of the newsletter is the Division’s charts on criminal enforcement, including number of cases files, fines and average jail sentences. These charts (here) often find their way into compliance or other presentations.
Also in the newsletter is a short YouTube video of Bill Baer speaking about the highlights of the past year. Mr. Baer was recently elevated from his position as head of the Antitrust Division to Acting Associate Attorney General, the number three post in the Department of Justice. Not much is expected to change at the Division, however, as Mr. Baer will still supervise the Antitrust Division in his new role. Additionally, Renata Hesse, a current deputy at the Division, will assume the role of Acting Assistant Attorney General for the Antitrust Division. Ms. Hesse has held many senior positions in the Antitrust Division, including a previous stint as Acting Assistant Attorney General.
Thanks for reading.
