Cartels and Criminal Practice Fundamentals Series

Wednesday, December 17, 2008
12:00 - 2:00 p.m. EST

This program will be the second in a series of programs on the "fundamentals" of criminal antitrust cases and cartel practice. Experienced prosecutors and defense counsel present an overview of key statutes that come into play in DOJ criminal antitrust investigations and prosecutions. In addition to Section 1 of the Sherman Act, panelists will review the basics of other statutes with which practitioners should be familiar. These include "companion offenses" such as mail and wire fraud, tax offenses, aiding and abetting, conspiracy, money laundering, FCPA, as well as statutes underpinning charges of crimes relating to the investigative process. These include obstruction of justice, perjury and false statements, and criminal contempt.

Mayer Brown Counsel Jennifer Driscoll is the chairperson for this event.
