The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) continues to focus on criminal prosecution of companies and individuals engaged in cartel, price-fixing or bid-rigging behavior. In a recent Congressional hearing, Antitrust Division Assistant Attorney General William Baer testified that DOJ is aggressively pursuing criminal price fixers and bid riggers because enforcement in these areas benefits consumers and the US economy. Vigorous criminal antitrust enforcement helps to eliminate illegal conduct, put wrongdoers on notice of the consequences, deter potential criminal activity, and result in lower prices for goods and services.
