    Event Synopsis:
    Challenges to mergers and acquisitions by US antitrust authorities spiked in 2019, with much attention paid to “nascent” competitive problems and vertical mergers. This was capped off by proposed Department of Justice (DOJ) and Federal Trade Commission (FTC) vertical merger guidelines, the first such guidelines issued since 1984. In addition, the DOJ has continued to express concern about merger remedies, leading to the DOJ’s attempt to stop the AT&T-Time Warner combination. The concern about remedies played another role in the court room, as one court engaged in an unprecedented expanded Tunney Act review of a merger consent order offered by the DOJ. And not to be outdone, the Attorney Generals of several states showed their dissatisfaction with the DOJ remedies in the T-Mobile/Sprint consolidation, bringing their own lawsuit to stop the deal.

    Given these developments, businesses who engage in merger transactions need to keep abreast of the recent enforcement priorities. They must proactively review their existing practices to ensure compliance with antitrust laws.

    Listen as a panel of distinguished leaders and antitrust practitioners organized by The Knowledge Group provide the audience with an in-depth discussion of the emerging trends and developments in the antitrust merger enforcement. Speakers, among other things, will offer practical compliance tips and strategies to avoid legal liabilities.

    This LIVE Webcast will discuss the following:
    - Antitrust Mergers: U.S. Trends and Updates
    - Recent Enforcement Priorities
    - Notable Cases and Rulings
    - Risk Mitigation Strategies
    - Best Compliance Practices
    - What Lies Ahead
