Beyond Leniency: Empirical Methods of Cartel Detection

Posted by D. Daniel Sokol

Thursday, December 15, 2011

Antitrust authorities have relied significantly on leniency applications to detect conspiracies, but despite their considerable success some collusion remains undetected. Recognizing the great value of multiple approaches to detection, several authorities have started to search for alternative and complementary approaches including empirical methods commonly known as screens. Screens have flagged unusual patterns in a variety of countries and industries, and in addition to their natural use for detection, they can also be successfully applied on the defense side. This panel will discuss the multiple uses of screens on both sides of antitrust investigations and litigation.
