Department of Justice to Hold Roundtable on Criminal Antitrust Compliance

On April 9, the Department of Justice’s Antitrust Division will hold a public roundtable discussion to explore the issue of corporate antitrust compliance and its implications for criminal antitrust enforcement policy.

The roundtable will provide a forum for the Antitrust Division to engage with inside and outside corporate counsel, foreign antitrust enforcers, international organization representatives, and other interested parties on the topic of antitrust compliance.  Participants will discuss the role that antitrust compliance programs play in preventing and detecting antitrust violations, and ways to further promote corporate antitrust compliance.  The format of the program will be a series of panel discussions with featured speakers.  Audience participation in the discussions will be encouraged. 

The Roundtable will take place in the Great Hall of the Robert F. Kennedy Department of Justice Building, 950 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW, Washington, DC, from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. EDT.  The agenda can be found here.

“Corporate compliance is key to the Antitrust Division’s ultimate goals of preventing and uncovering criminal antitrust violations and protecting consumers and small businesses,” said Assistant Attorney General Makan Delrahim. “The Division values continued engagement with corporate counsel, the antitrust bar, and other stakeholders on this important topic.” 

The roundtable will be open to the public.  Individuals wishing to attend must register on the Department’s website. For more information or to submit questions or comments, please send an email to ATRCompliance@usdoj.gov.
