Prosecutors investigating misconduct among financial institutions have in the past considered both antitrust and fraud theories in prosecuting claims. But is antitrust law the right tool (or is it a better tool)? Benjamin Sirota joins Jana Seidl and John Roberti to discuss lessons learned from the DOJ’s LIBOR and FX prosecutions – the first in terms of close cooperation between fraud and antitrust prosecutors – and predictions for what we may see next. Listen to this episode to learn more about the history of applying antitrust to financial services and how antitrust may fit in future cases involving financial services companies.
