Recent cartel developments in the UK

This Alert summarises two significant recent developments in UK cartel law. The first development relates to the right of third parties to bring damages claims against the participants in a cartel, specifically the time period within which such a case must be brought where it relies on a competition authority’s infringement decision. The second development relates to a proposal intended to increase the number of successful prosecutions for cartel activity in the UK by removing the “dishonesty” requirement of the offence and introducing a series of defences in its place.
