The Canadian Bar Association Competition Fall Online Symposium

Morrison & Foerster partner Lisa Phelan will participate in a CBA panel discussing recent trends in cartel enforcement and investigations. With more than 25 years of service at the DOJ as one of the leading authorities in criminal antitrust matters, Lisa will draw upon her unmatched criminal investigations, litigation, and enforcement experience.


2:15 pm – 3:30 pm The Proper Boundaries of Criminal Enforcement and the Rise of Domestic Cartel Enforcement

In light of the downward trend in global cartel enforcement and Bureau initiatives to address domestic conduct, can we expect more local cartel cases? This session will explore key considerations in the context of renewed focus on domestic criminal investigations and address takeaways from recent domestic investigations and trials. Our panelists will also address the expanded scope of criminal enforcement in light of recent domestic cases and the revised Competitor Collaboration Guidelines.
