The last year produced several significant developments in cartel enforcement. In 2016 we saw record fines imposed by global enforcement authorities. More and more countries have criminalized cartel conduct, increasing the possibility of extradition for individuals in global investigations. Enforcement authorities around the world continue to forge closer ties amid this increase, executing formal cooperation agreements and working together on cartel investigations.
