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.

Some of the major topics that will be covered in this course are:
• Antitrust and data issues in the digital economy

• 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
