Event Synopsis:

Recent government challenges of proposed and consummated mergers and enforcement actions and investigations against companies engaged in price fixing or exclusionary contracting have taken antitrust scrutiny to new levels. In a complex and dynamic economy, the issues can involve intellectual property rights, investments in innovation, and relationships with distributors and customers.

The Knowledge Group is assembling a panel of key experts and thought leaders to help companies understand and manage the antitrust risks and issues that they may encounter before they embark on an acquisition strategy or a contract negotiation with key customers, distributors, and suppliers. In a two-hour live webcast, speakers will provide an in-depth analysis of the key antitrust issues of the day and their implications. Panelists will also discuss how companies can effectively deal with potential antitrust scrutiny and provide practical guidance on how companies can remain in compliance with the antitrust laws.
