The U.S. Chamber of Commerce today released its latest antitrust practitioner survey, which sought feedback based on practitioner experiences in working with enforcement agencies on matters of transparency and due process in investigative proceedings. The survey measured practitioner views on adherence to guidance issued by the International Competition Network (ICN) in 2015.
