The Antitrust Division of the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ)'s increased foreign antitrust enforcement presents the prospect of monumental penalties for companies and individuals. Over the last several years, these investigations have resulted in multinational companies paying criminal fines of hundreds of millions of dollars and have also ensnared executives, who have agreed to plead guilty and serve prison time in the United States for violating the U.S. antitrust laws. These cases reflect the DOJ's continued prioritization of international cartel investigations, a trend that has only intensified in recent years as cooperation among global regulators has increased. The discussion will cover the U.S.'s new administration likely antitrust enforcement philosophy as well as the recently issued updates on the DOJ and Federal Trade Commission guidelines for international enforcement of U.S. antitrust laws, which shed new light on how federal agencies cooperate with foreign counterparts during investigations.

About CLE Credit

Temple Law School is an accredited provider of continuing legal education (CLE) in Pennsylvania. Various states, including California and New York, recognize Pennsylvania CLE credits. However, attorneys are responsible for checking with the CLE board in their jurisdiction before attending the CLE seminar whether Pennsylvania CLE credits will count towards their CLE requirements and what their jurisdiction requires them to do to claim out-of-state CLE credits. Please inform us before the seminar if your CLE board requires anything other than a copy of the Pennsylvania CLE credit form and a certificate of attendance.
