Antitrust is a multifaceted and complex area of law, spanning criminal enforcement, merger review and enforcement by state and federal antitrust regulators, non-merger regulatory investigations and civil litigation, private (individual and class-action) civil litigation, and client counseling on antitrust issues. Given this breadth, staying on top of key developments in antitrust law and enforcement is a challenge for even the most diligent antitrust practitioners, and it is downright daunting for general practitioners seeking to maintain a basic understanding of the state of U.S. (let alone international) antitrust law.


Never has this been more true than today. Just in the last year in the U.S. we have seen fascinating developments in antitrust litigation in the payment cards, sports, music, and other industries; important milestones in the intersection of antitrust and intellectual property law; continued aggressive criminal antitrust enforcement against both companies and individuals; and energetic regulatory review and successful blocking of mergers by federal and state antitrust enforcers. And antitrust practice and enforcement has been no less dynamic outside of the U.S.


This course, presented by Wes Powell, Matt Freimuth, Heather Schneider, and Stuart Lombardi of Willkie Farr & Gallagher, is designed to bring both generalist and specialist practitioners up to date on key recent developments and highlight trends in antitrust law that are likely to continue in 2016 and beyond.


To accomplish this, the program provides a brief, high-level overview of U.S. antitrust law and enforcement, reviews recent developments and important emerging issues across the full spectrum of U.S. antitrust law, including private and government civil litigation, criminal enforcement and merger enforcement, and addresses selected antitrust hot topics emerging outside the U.S.


Learning Objectives:

I.     Gain a high-level overview of antitrust law and enforcement in the U.S.

II.    Learn about the key issues antitrust practitioners, enforcement agencies, and judges are grappling with today

III.   Understand how to spot these key issues if and when they appear in your business and/or legal practice
