Practical Guide in Designing and Implementing an Effective Antitrust Compliance Program
Recording Available: Wednesday, March 24, 2021
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, a panel of thought leaders and professionals brought together by The Knowledge Group 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.
