Antitrust is a multifaceted and complex area of law, including civil litigation, criminal enforcement, merger and non-merger investigations, and client counseling. Staying current on key developments is challenging for regular antitrust practitioners, let alone generalists and inside counsel. Over the course of 2018, there were several major developments, including a decision from the Supreme Court evaluating the antitrust implications of platform markets and the rule of reason, changes in agency practice, and much more.
This course, presented by Kail Jethmalani of Axinn, Veltrop & Harkrider LLP, is designed to update generalists, antitrust practitioners, and inside counsel alike on some of the key recent developments that could affect their clients in 2019 and beyond. To accomplish this, the program provides a brief, high-level overview of U.S. antitrust law and enforcement, reviews some key recent developments, and important emerging issues across U.S. antitrust law.
Kail Jethmalani represents clients in all areas of antitrust law, including high-stakes litigation, M&A, investigations, and counseling. He has experience with both domestic and cross-border M&A transactions, representing clients before the U.S. Department of Justice, Federal Trade Commission, and competition regulators in Europe, China, Korea, Japan, India, and other jurisdictions. Kail represents clients in multi-district litigations around the country, as well as in sensitive government and internal investigations. Kail also counsels clients on antitrust issues relating to their core business practices.
Additionally, Kail maintains an active pro bono practice. In 2018, he led a team that secured asylum for a pro bono client fleeing political persecution. In 2017 and 2018, the New York State Bar Association recognized Kail’s pro bono contributions through the Empire State Counsel program.
Prior to Axinn, Kail interned at the civil division of the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of New York. At the University of Michigan Law School, Kail served as the Executive Production Editor on the Michigan Business and Entrepreneurial Law Review and as a research assistant to Professor Daniel Crane. Kail was a student attorney in Michigan’s International Transactions Clinic, where he assisted not-for-profit entities with foreign investments and anti-money laundering, OFAC and other regulatory compliance. Kail was also a research editor for three American Bar Association Section of Antitrust Law publications: Antitrust Law Journal, Antitrust Magazine and The Antitrust Source.
