IBC Legal Conferences: Dealing with Cartel Risk
February 27, 2008
Cartels remain the top enforcement priority for competition regulators throughout the world. Everybody should worry about cartel risks. Issues can arise even for the most compliant. Avoiding such consequences requires vigilance from the companies legal advisers (in-house and external), care in devising appropriate compliance measures and, if the worst happens, devising a defence strategy that may include swift action to seek leniency or developing a settlement proposal.
Dealing with Cartel Risk brings together leading experts from private practice, the European Commission and the Office of Fair Trading with the experience to lead you through the practical issues in this complex area and to bring you up to speed on the latest developments in settlements.
Jeff Blumenfeld and Sean-Paul Brankin are speaking at this event. Mr. Blumenfeld's topic is "Managing worldwide leniency applications" and Mr. Brankin's topic is "The Commission's proposals - heading in the right direction?"
