Abstract

Leniency applicants take on significant risks by self-reporting behaviors that may constitute competition law violations.To balance these risks, the requirements for conditional immunity should be set fairly by competition authorities, particularly when it comes to revoking immunity. This article provides a global overview of approaches to leniency revocations, along with a discussion of public policy.
