Partner Ted Banks, a recognized author of numerous publications on compliance and antitrust issues, is a contributing co-author of the American Bar Association Antitrust Law Section’s latest publication, the ABA Antitrust Compliance Handbook: A Practitioner’s Guide. The book is a valuable resource for in-house counsel and compliance practitioners charged with developing or updating their clients’ antitrust compliance program.
Mr. Banks authored the introductory chapter, “An In-House Counsel’s View.” With over three decades of in-house experience as a Compliance Officer, Mr. Banks provides his insights on establishing the policies, training and controls that are critical to a company’s antitrust compliance program.
Lawyers advising corporate clients, whether they be outside or in-house counsel, are under constant pressure to ensure that their clients are well-informed about the antitrust laws and how to comply with them. A carefully planned and well-executed compliance program is essential to minimize risk for corporate clients and to qualify for potential credit in enforcement actions under new Department of Justice guidelines. The Antitrust Compliance Handbook: A Practitioner's Guide contains new chapters to aid outside and in-house counsel, including chapters on conducting risk assessments, program design, benchmarking programs, employee training, using online technology in training/audits, preparing for dawn raids, special considerations for competitor collaborations and trade associations.
The ABA Antitrust Compliance Handbook: A Practitioners Guide is available through the American Bar Association. For more information, Click here.
