Jenner & Block Partner Gabriel A. Fuentes spoke at the recent Annual Meeting of the ABA Business Law Section in Chicago, as a member of a panel presentation titled “FTAIA Litigation and Effects on Future Competition Enforcement.”  The program addressed litigation under the Foreign Trade Antitrust Improvements Act and its impact on criminal antitrust investigations and prosecutions.  Gabe spoke specifically about the Justice Department Antitrust Division’s continuing increased focus on global enforcement, including the trend toward seeking increased prison sentences for individual defendants whose conduct occurred entirely outside the United States; the state of the law concerning extraterritorial application of U.S. criminal antitrust law; and some of the options available to individuals and their employers when the Antitrust Division targets individuals for possible criminal indictment.    

Gabe is a member of the White Collar Defense and Investigations, Antitrust Litigation, and Media and First Amendment Practices.  A former Assistant U.S. Attorney with broad-based experience in complex civil and criminal matters, Gabe has represented Japanese corporations and individuals in some of the most significant and complex international criminal antitrust investigations of the past decade.
