It is an honor to speak here today, at what I know will be the first of many informative programs on the important topics of corporate enforcement and individual accountability. This is an exciting time for the Antitrust Division, for many reasons, one of which is that just yesterday President Biden announced that he plans to nominate Jonathan Kanter as our Assistant Attorney General. The Division’s career officials and staff—myself included—eagerly await his arrival and look forward to carrying out his priorities. Of course, right now I can’t speak to what those priorities will be, and my remarks today should not be taken as an indication otherwise. But I welcome the opportunity to reflect on the recent accomplishments of the Division’s Criminal Program, which I have now been leading for over three years, and shed some light on the principles underlying that work.
