The jurisdictional overview in Leniency Regimes, 5th edition, provides an up-to-date analysis of leniency regimes for business involved in cross-border activities, and is an invaluable tool for general counsel and their private practice advisers.

Since our fourth edition in 2012, detection and punishment of international cartels remain a top priority of antitrust agencies and leniency programs remain an important source of information for national competition authorities and a defence for companies operating globally.

This title gives companies and their legal advisers critical insight into the increasingly complex and important questions they face when considering whether to apply for Leniency.
