Global Competition Review will host its international conference titled “GCR Live 7th Annual Antitrust Law Leaders Forum” from Friday, February 2nd to Saturday, February 3rd in Miami, Florida. Antitrust partner William Lavery will be joined by others on a panel titled “Antitrust: Deterrence in cartel enforcement: Have we passed the breaking point, or is there room left to hurt?”
This panel will consider the effect of deterrence on modern cartel compliance.
• Headlines of ever increasing cartel fines and long jail sentences (and sentences from new jurisdictions) have receded. What have we learned?
• Has the run up in cartel fine levels and jail sentences caught the attention of clients? Has business behaviour been changed as a result of a deterrent effect?
• What has been the effect of deterrence on modern compliance as opposed to other cultural and legal currents / developments that may have also encouraged compliance (e.g., improvements in corporate governance, changes in workplace culture / accountability, more diversity in the workplace, expansion of parent / subsidiary liability, etc.).
