    Event Summary

    In the US, the calls to step up enforcement of the antitrust laws have been heating up, as evidenced most prominently by President Bidenís Executive Order on Competition. The broad-reaching order, which contained 72 specific initiatives directed across multiple federal agencies, aims to address some of the most pressing competition issues across the economy. In particular, it encourages the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and the US Department of Justice (DOJ) to vigorously enforce current competition laws, revisit anticompetitive mergers, revise merger guidelines, and increase scrutiny of future mergers. Responding to this call, the FTC announced its decision to rescind the Vertical Merger Guidelines, and both agencies have signaled their intent to revisit the Horizontal Merger Guidelines and the Vertical Merger Guidelines. Chairwoman Lina Khan has similarly initiated a number of policy changes at the FTC aimed at more aggressive antitrust enforcement.

    These recent actions by the Biden Administration underscore the need for businesses in all economic sectors to reassess their practices and potential transactions and ensure that they comply with the new policies going forward. They must also keep abreast with any emerging development in the regulatory paradigm to avoid legal pitfalls.

    In this CLE program, a panel of key thought leaders and industry experts will provide the audience with an in-depth analysis of the current and emerging trends and developments in antitrust merger enforcement.

    Key issues that will be covered in this course are:
    ē Antitrust Law Under the Biden Administration: Overview
    ē Current and Emerging Updates in Antitrust Enforcement
    ē What Lies Ahead
