Jun. 14, 2018
Toronto ON

The Cartel and Criminal Practice Committee of the ABA’s Section of Antitrust Law and the Criminal Matters Committee of the CBA’s Competition Law Section are pleased to convene their Third Annual Forum on Cartel Enforcement with lead enforcers from the U.S. Department of Justice and the Competition Bureau 

The State of Cross-Border Criminal and Cartel Enforcement: Enforcement Trends in the U.S. and Canada

June 14, 2018 | 4:00 PM to 5:15 PM Eastern
Attend In-Person or by Teleconference

In Person: Osler, Hoskin & Harcourt LLP, Suite 6300, 1 First Canadian Place, Toronto, ON

A short reception will be held after the panel for attendees and members of the CBA and ABA.

Criminal cartel enforcement is in a state of transition in the U.S. and Canada. There have been changes in the leadership of U.S. Department of Justice Antitrust Division and the Competition Bureau, and the Bureau is in the process of reviewing and revising its Immunity and Leniency Programs to reflect recent court decisions and prosecutions in Canada.

The Antitrust Division and the Competition Bureau have also deepened their coordination in certain investigations, but appear to have charted different paths on the issues of individual accountability and the effectiveness of incarceration. To discuss these and other current enforcement trends, the recently appointed Acting Deputy Assistant Attorney General for Criminal Enforcement at the Antitrust Division will join the even more recently appointed Interim Commissioner of the Competition Bureau and two senior practitioners to discuss the state of enforcement, coordination among regulators in cross-border investigations, and recent decisions in the U.S. and Canada relating to recent penalties and practice, and disclosure issues relevant to amnesty/leniency/immunity applicants.
