Wind of Change: The Antitrust Division’s New Guidance for Evaluating Compliance Programs in Criminal Cases
12 PM EDT August 1, 2019
Recently the U.S. Department of Justice Antitrust Division reversed its longstanding policy and issued new guidance stating that it will evaluate the effectiveness of corporate antitrust compliance programs at the charging and penalty phases of criminal investigations. In this program, experienced antitrust practitioners and a DOJ prosecutor will shed light on the practical implications of this new policy for corporate parties seeking to manage their antitrust risk.
Attendees are invited to submit questions for the panelists to address to the attention of Alicia Downey, co-chair of the Compliance & Ethics Committee, at email@example.com.
