    Event Synopsis:
    The pharmaceutical industry has reportedly reduced its use of anti-competitive agreements after challenges to reverse payment settlement have been renewed since Actavis. Although this trend will push forward as parties involved in reverse payment settlements face litigation threats, new and ongoing litigation is expected to continue in relation to pre-Actavis settlement agreements.

    In this LIVE Webcast, a panel of economists who are thought leaders assembled by The Knowledge Group will discuss current trends in reverse payment settlement litigation. They will share their insights on the implications of recent cases and discuss key economic issues upon which the outcome(s) of antitrust litigation can turn.

    Key topics include:
    - Reverse Payment Settlement Litigation: Recent Trends and Updates
    - Role of Market Power
    - Assessing Market Power Using “Direct Evidence”
    - Valuing Ancillary Agreements including “no-AG” Clauses
    - Role of Causation
    - Establishing Common Antitrust Injury with Common Proof in Class Actions
    - Damages Calculations in Class Actions
