Course Description

This course is, as its title suggests, an introductory antitrust compliance course for corporate generalists, in-house counsel, and general practitioners. It provides a basic, fast-paced overview of US antitrust law and principles and is intended to help the non-specialist identify antitrust issues when they arise in practice. The purpose of the program is to make sure that “you know it when you see it.”  

Join James Calder of Katten Muchin Rosenman LLP, an antitrust veteran with decades of experience advising clients on antitrust corporate matters and representing parties in antitrust litigation and investigations, for this engaging and important presentation.  

Learning Objectives:

  1. Use antitrust as a business tool – and understand why it is both a sword and a shield in the hands of sophisticated counsel and business executives
  2. Discuss an overview of US antitrust laws and a taste of foreign competition law
  3. Identify penalties for antitrust violations and the importance of ongoing antitrust compliance
  4. Address basic antitrust issues that arise and the principles that govern their resolution

Bikash R.

Excellent presentation. I hope you'll invite him to do the intermediate level talk he mentioned. I would suggest running something on state unfair and deceptive trade practices laws which are akin to anti-trust but much more likely to be litigated in a run of the mill business lawsuit.
