Cartel participation is criminalized and directors involved in cartels could be disqualified for periods of up to 15 years. In view of UK legislation and initiatives already undertaken at EC level in relation to cartels, it is increasingly evident that the detection and punishment of price-fixing, market-sharing and collusive tendering is the number one priority for both the EC and UK competition authorities. Law of Cartels is the only book dedicated solely to this important area of competition law. It clearly sets out the legal principles governing cartels and the consequences of cartel-like behavior. It also offers practical advice for lawyers advising companies, such as guidance on dealing with cartel investigations by the competition authorities- guidance on implementing compliance programs to reduce the risk of cartel activity taking place- and guidance on the options open to undertakings accused of being involved in cartels.
