    Last 2019, the Antitrust Division of the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) issued a guidance outlining how DOJ assesses antitrust corporate compliance programs as part of its Corporate Leniency Program. The guidance highlights the importance of an antitrust compliance program in resolving criminal investigations as well as the elements that make up an effective compliance plan.

    This is a call for organizations to commit sufficient resources in designing or introducing a corporate antitrust enforcement plan. They are also encouraged to re-evaluate current systems to ensure its effectiveness and identify what steps should be taken to bring antitrust regulatory systems in line with the current DOJ guidance.

    In this LIVE Webcast, competition law experts Fabian Leimgruber LL.M., (ThomannFischer) and Esther Pyon (Clifford Chance) will provide the audience with an in-depth analysis of the recent developments in U.S. antitrust laws. Speakers will specifically present a practical guide to design and implement an effective antitrust compliance program in light of the DOJ guidance.

    • The DOJ’s Guidance and Its Implication to Antitrust Compliance Programs
    • Factors in Determining an Effective Antitrust Compliance Program
    • Benefits of an Effective Antitrust Compliance Program
    • Best Practices in Designing and Implementing an Effective Antitrust Compliance Program
