The IBA Cartels Working Group has 15 members representing a large number of jurisdictions covering Europe, Asia, Australia, Africa and the Americas. The Group includes several former senior antitrust officials and a former competition commissioner, private practitioners in leading law firms, and in-house competition counsel.
The Group follows cartel developments around the world and provides input and comments on various consultations on proposed new and reformed legislation to which the IBA’s international perspective and the members' collective expertise and experience can bring significant added value. The Group is also active in other aspects of the IBA’s work including in cartel policy issues more generally, as well as in monitoring developments and assisting with organising conferences.
In December 2016, the Working Group submitted comments and suggestions in response to the Department of Justice’s Antitrust Division (DOJ) and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) public consultation version of proposed Antitrust Guidelines for International Enforcement and Cooperation.
