The Knowledge Group Has Scheduled a Live Webcast on DOJ Cartel Investigations and Criminal Litigations: Recent Trends and Developments Uncovered

New York, NY, November 19, 2017 --( The Knowledge Group/The Knowledge Congress Live Webcast Series, the leading producer of regulatory focused webcasts, announced today that it has scheduled a live webcast entitled: DOJ Cartel Investigations and Criminal Litigations: Recent Trends and Developments Uncovered! Live Webcast. This event is scheduled on December 11, 2017 from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm (ET).

Event Synopsis:
Cartel enforcement and investigations continue to become stiffer globally. Recent developments show that countries are serious in their campaign for fair competition and trade regulation. Several notable developments took place last year and enforcement is expected to be magnified this year.

For instance, US DOJ cartel investigations last year were significantly lower than that of 2015's. This shows that there has been no major cross-border cartel investigation and that the US DOJ’s Antitrust Division can now focus on domestic investigations which are relatively smaller compared to global ones. In addition, the European Union has also imposed large fines last year with more than $1billion case fines.

With the stricter implementation and anticipation this year, companies around the globe, should revisit and review their compliance programs to better prevent and mitigate regulatory risks. The Knowledge Group has assembled a panel of key thought leaders to provide the audience with an in-depth analysis of cartel investigations and criminal litigation in 2017. In this Live webcast, speakers will help companies understand the important aspects of this significant topic and will offer significant insights on how to effectively comply with existing laws, thus preventing risks of violations.
