  •  Stage 2: Search Warrants & Dawn Raids: Before, During, and After - TBD April, 2013
  •  Stage 3: Investigation and Negotiation: How to Bring Cartel Investigations to an End - TBD May, 2013

Amnesty-Leniency Strategy
This session will assist in-house counsel to better understand the considerations in determining whether to submit a leniency application and how to do so in a manner that optimally addresses the client's interests. Topics will include:

  • Marker process for securing amnesty
  • Thresholds for leniency (including scope and quality of evidence) and leniency application process
  • Evaluation of amnesty/leniency costs and benefits
  • Amnesty Plus applications
  • Multi-jurisdictional applications (US, EU, and EU member states)
