Recognizing Compliance and Ethics Heroes and Pioneers
Dr. Rosa M. Abrantes-Metz was recently recognized for her contributions in the field of antitrust compliance. The article describes how screens—a sophisticated form of data analysis—came to be developed and recognized, first as an enforcement tool and then as a key way for companies to develop effective compliance and ethics programs. Dr. Abrantes-Metz was critical in helping develop the tools now used in screening and cracking cartel cases. Billions of dollars have been paid in settlement of these cases, and companies can now prevent those costs by using the tools she helped develop. She has also found that the same methodology can address unilateral, or monopolistic, conduct.
