ABSTRACT
This article reports on the decision of the European Commission to establish a one-stop shop with the European Competition Network to simplify procedure for companies applying for leniency in cartel cases. Leniency allows authorities to offer full immunity or a reduction in fines that would otherwise have been imposed on a cartel member in exchange for disclosure of information and cooperation with the investigation.
