An Ounce of Prevention: An Effective Antitrust Compliance Program

Those who think antitrust is relevant only for big business should think again. Failing to recognize antitrust risk is costly.

Violations of the federal antitrust laws may result in penalties for individuals of up to $1 million and 10 years’ imprisonment and for corporations of up to $100 million.
