International Cartel Workshop–Tokyo, February 3-5

International Cartel Workshop–Tokyo, February 3-5

I will be attending the International Cartel Worksop in Tokyo from February 3-5.  The workshop centers around a hypothetical international cartel investigation with enactments of the many behind the scenes interactions such as discussions among various enforcement agencies plan simultaneous dawn raids, the decision of in-house and outside counsel about whether to seek amnesty/leniency and the tough choices that counsel for individual defendants/targets face in deciding whether to cooperate.  The roles on the panels are played by actual enforcers and counsel experienced in this area.  I will be portraying a target of the investigation discussing options with my counsel.  There will also be mock courtroom proceedings. (Hopefully one where my innocence is established!)

I’ve reposted a message below from Roxann Henry, Chair of the ABA Antitrust Section with a link to the program in case you are interested;


It’s not too late to register for the International Cartel Workshop to be held in Tokyo on February 3-5, 2016. With over 300 already registered, the participation of top enforcers from jurisdictions around the globe — including the US, EC, Canada, Brazil, and Japan — and mock courtroom proceedings in both civil and criminal cases before a US federal judge, Tokyo will abound with new insights and fantastic networking. A special, one-time only 50% discount for in-house legal departments has driven attendance from the corporate world in Japan and brought new members to the ABA and the Section. (The least expensive way for in-house legal department members from outside the US to register is to join the ABA at the international rate and the Section, then take advantage of the Section rate.) If your practice involves cartels, don’t miss this event!

As the Section year nears its halfway mark, I once again want to thank everyone for their work on behalf of the Section.

Roxann Henry, Chair
