Antitrust: Expect Strict Enforcement

Posted January 23, 2015 at 1:30 pm

The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) recently reported another banner year in collecting antitrust fines and sending corporate executives to jail.  

In the fiscal year ending Sept. 30, 2014, the DOJ collected $1,861 billion in criminal fines and obtained jail sentences for 21 corporate executives. The average jail sentence was 26 months. Worldwide antitrust enforcement results in billions of dollars of fines every year, followed by more billions in treble damage settlements.

TRSA has a strong antitrust compliance program and urges all members to make sure that their activities comply with antitrust requirements. For further information, click on the links below or consult with your attorney:
