What Are The Penalties For Antitrust Violations?
A conviction for an antitrust violation will have serious repercussions. Under the Sherman Act, an individual may be fined up to $350,000 and up to three years in federal prison. A business may face up to $10 million in fines. It may be near impossible to recover from such a blow. The best option is to avoid a conviction in the first place or to negotiate for a fair outcome.
