    Cartel Settlements in the US and EU

    12 PM EDT

    Competition regulators and defendants may opt to settle cartel cases rather than go to trial. How does the settlement process work in each jurisdiction? What factors do the regulators consider when deciding whether to settle an investigation? How can a company best negotiate for a favorable settlement? And what effect does a settlement have on private follow-on actions? Our panel will discuss these issues in the context of plea agreements with the US Department of Justice and settlements with the European Commission.
