No Charges Against International Executive Investigated for Antitrust / Price Fixing
A Japanese company came under investigation by the Antitrust Division of the U.S. Department of Justice for price fixing. So did a number of its senior executives, one of whom turned to antitrust defense lawyer Harlan Protass for representation. Based on a careful and detailed analysis of his client’s communications with competitors, attorney Protass persuaded federal prosecutors to exclude his client from the list of senior executives identified as having potential criminal exposure. The client was never charged and lives today in retirement in Japan.
The outcome of an individual case depends on a variety of factors unique to that case. Case results do not guarantee or predict a similar result in any similar or future case.
