There have been a number of high-profile antitrust cases filed in the U.S. over the past few years as well as greater activity and arguably heightened scrutiny by the Department of Justice, the Federal Trade Commission and state enforcers. Outside of the U.S., antitrust enforcers have been even more active. This increased activity means that business executives and counsel must understand current antitrust enforcement focuses so that they can ensure their compliance, limit risk, and avoid potential pitfalls.
In this live webcast, a seasoned panel of thought leaders and professionals brought together by The Knowledge Group will present an overview of antitrust enforcement trends in 2019, focusing on practical guidance for businesses.
Some of the major topics that will be covered in this course are:
• Antitrust and data issues in the digital economy
• Merger reviews leading to anticompetitive conduct investigations
• Post-closing deal challenges
• Vertical merger scrutiny and skepticism of behavioral remedies
• Cartel enforcement and standing issues
• Two-sided platforms
• Class certification
• What lies ahead
