Companies operating in the global marketplace face increasing exposure to price-fixing accusations by both private plaintiffs and governments, and they look to London antitrust law firm Crefovi for assistance with investigations, litigation and compliance.
Leveraging cartel exposure risk due to cartel investigation & litigation
Billions: that is what is often at stake for companies accused of price-fixing, with criminal and administrative fine exposure around the world and follow-on enterprise-threatening private damage litigation from direct and indirect customers. With so many markets and businesses that are global in scope, cartel exposure risk, due to cartel investigation & litigation, is compounded by its reach across jurisdictions and by increased cartel enforcement worldwide, including the use of widely adopted leniency programs that limit a whistleblower’s exposure.
In this environment, a global approach to cartel investigation & litigation is the only approach that works because exposure is so rarely confined to one jurisdiction. Moreover, companies need speed and sophistication to identify and assess potential exposure in time to determine reliable lines of defense or, if appropriate, seek leniency. The cartel investigation & litigation defense practice of London antitrust & competition law firm Crefovi is designed to meet these challenges.
