Course Materials

This CLE course will prepare antitrust attorneys to develop and implement compliance programs that foster the prevention and early detection of antitrust violations. The panel will also offer practical advice for leveraging effective compliance programs when responding to government investigations or seeking leniency in sentencing for antitrust violations.


Antitrust violations trigger government investigations and lawsuits that can result in enormous penalties, severe civil and criminal sanctions, and costly litigation defense. The DOJ Antitrust Division recovered over $1 billion in criminal fines during fiscal year 2013 and is expected to exceed that amount in fiscal year 2014.

Attorneys must guide clients in creating, implementing and monitoring antitrust compliance programs that will help to avoid or detect potential violations and minimize the risk of antitrust liability. When government investigations ensue, counsel should advise companies on ways to leverage their antitrust compliance programs to defend against allegations or mitigate penalties and sanctions.

Listen as our authoritative panel of antitrust attorneys explains the key elements of an effective antitrust compliance program and strategies for businesses to avoid or detect antitrust violations and limit liability exposure.
