The UCL Jevons Institute for Competition Law and Economics is pleased to announce its Fifth Annual Forum on Antitrust and Regulation:
CARTEL SANCTIONS AND THE BALANCE OF OPTIMAL ENFORCEMENT
to be held on 4 February 2010 from 5.30 - 8.00pm, at UCL Law Faculty, London
accredited with 2 CPD hours by the Bar Standards Board and the Solicitors Regulation Authority
About this event:
Use of cartel sanctions and the effectiveness of public and private enforcement against cartels is coming under renewed scrutiny. Some of the issues that are being considered in Europe include: enhanced penalties for recidivism, full waivers for leniency applicants who are also ringleaders, co-operation outside the leniency process, the role of private damages and the issue of parent-company liability. The issue of criminal sanctions is being considered at national level. The incoming Commissioner Almunia and DG Comp will have to tackle all these issues in the coming months. These themes have implications also national level for both national authorities and courts, particularly in the UK where private damages are taking off and cartelists can be exposed to criminal prosecutions. Judge Douglas Ginsburg of US Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit will discuss some of those issues from a US and international perspective and the Jevons Forum will include contributions from John Fingleton of the OFT, Ewoud Sakkers of the European Commission and a judge from the newly-renamed EU General Court. Sir Christopher Bellamy a former CFI judge and President of the UK Competition Appeal Tribunal will chair the debate.
