Dear Readers,

If there is one topic that never gets stale in antitrust, it is cartels. With the help of guest editor Rein Wesseling, we’re taking a look at the current state of cartel enforcement, in particular leniency programs. Is the early success of leniency programs threatened by new roadblocks, including conflicts with enforcing individual criminal charges, different global approaches, hybrid cartel cases, more sophisticated risk analyses? We look at these questions and more. And, in an of special interest article, James Rill has some thoughts on the U.S. antitrust authorities’ SEP enforcement activities.

As always, thank you to our great panel of authors.
