Grand Jury and Cartel Investigations, Amnesty, and Compliance

‘Trusted advisers who understand the industry, as well as legal trends and policy influences affecting antitrust’. ‘Relied upon for the most important matters.’ - Legal 500

Cadwalader offers world-class experience in antitrust grand jury investigations and in advising foreign and domestic clients under criminal or cartel investigations by the DOJ, the EC, and other jurisdictions. We have represented both corporations and individuals in numerous investigations involving allegations of price-fixing, market allocation, bid-rigging, and other criminal conduct on a national or global scale. Our group is uniquely qualified to advise clients on current criminal enforcement and the most effective strategies in protecting our clients' interests during the investigation and in anticipation of possible private treble-damage claims.

The group also has extensive experience with the amnesty programs of the DOJ and of antitrust jurisdictions around the world. Two of our partners have served as experts on DOJ's amnesty program in litigation.

In addition the group routinely advises multi-national corporations on antitrust compliance. We work with clients to develop and implement state of the art antitrust compliance and monitoring programs.
