Law360, New York (February 25, 2011, 2:23 PM EST) -- The surge of global cartel enforcement resulting from the adoption of new and enhanced leniency programs worldwide and from increased communications among global enforcers is well known. There are now over 100 jurisdictions that prohibit cartel behavior, at least 35 of which have seen recent enhancement to their leniency programs.
Nonetheless, most investigations in the headlines continue to involve a relatively small and active group of jurisdictions because the widespread passage of anti-cartel policies has not necessarily translated into their vigorous implementation.
