New York, NY, December 13, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- The Knowledge Group/The Knowledge Congress Live Webcast Series, the leading producer of regulatory focused webcasts, announced today that it has scheduled a live webcast entitled:Antitrust Damages: Economic and Legal Considerations in 2018. This event is scheduled on January 30, 2018 from 12:00 PM to 1:30 PM ET.
Given the increased cross-border coordination among enforcement agencies related to antitrust violations, and the potential for increased private litigation in which plaintiffs allege damages, companies are increasingly focused on compliance and risk mitigation. While antitrust damages claims are common place in the U.S., attention to damages quantification is also growing in other parts of the world, particularly in Europe, where a large number of cartel cases have been reported. Last year, the European Union’s Damages Directive was implemented to help victims of anti-competitive conduct exercise their rights to full compensation.
Considering the significant changes imposed by the Directive and the ever-changing competition landscape, it is imperative for companies to keep abreast of recent regulatory updates and to establish effective antitrust compliance programs in order to minimize risks.
In this Livr Webcast, a panel of distinguished professionals and thought leaders organized by The Knowledge Group will provide an overview of the latest trends and critical issues with respect to antitrust damages. Speakers will also discuss economic and legal considerations, risk mitigation techniques and best practices for managing an effective antitrust compliance program.
Key issues that will be covered in this course are:
Antitrust Damages – An Overview
Recent Changes and Developments
Economic and Legal Considerations
Litigation Trends and Challenges
Potential Implications for the Competition Litigation Landscape
Risk Assessment Strategies
