The 11th International Cartel Workshop will be held in Tokyo, Japan from February 3-5, 2016. Recognized globally as the premier international cartel conference, the 2016 Workshop will continue the tradition of instruction by demonstration. The faculty of more than 75 highly-experienced attorneys and enforcers will take you inside a hypothetical international cartel matter, where you will witness over 25 different real world scenarios, ranging from discovery of the conduct to multi-jurisdictional enforcement strategies to dispositions by enforcers to handling of private actions.  The workshop will also highlight the many new developments in the law and leniency practices across jurisdictions and will feature two Enforcers' Roundtables where agency heads will address current issues.

WilmerHale Partner Thomas Mueller will participate in the following sessions: 

  • Demonstration 1 – A Company Discovers Potential Collusion & Considers What To Do; Scene 2 – An Emergency Meeting Of The Board:  Should The Company Seek Leniency Markers?
  • Demonstration 2 – A Panel of Experts Evaluates In What Jurisdictions The Leniency Applicant Should Seek Markers
  • Demonstration 3 – The Company Seeks Markers In The United States, EU And Japan; Scene 1 – The company seeks a marker and discusses the terms for perfecting its marker in the United States
  • Roundtable – Predicting The Future:  What Is Next In Global Cartel Enforcement? (Moderator)
