    About Greg Heltzer
    Greg Heltzer has analyzed the antitrust implications of most transactions involving a publicly traded company – including over 800 inthe last decade. Greg focuses his practice on defending mergers and acquisitions and has successfully defended mergers for DaVita, Mars, Olam, TreeHouse Foods, Motorola Solutions, Le Duff America, JAB Partners (Coty), Aleris, and Blackboard among others. His advice allows C-Suite decision makers to ensure that time and money are not wasted on potential transactions without a viable path for clearance. When transactions move forward, Greg guides clients through the clearance process with a focus on providing enforcers with the information needed so that the merging parties can avoid or at the very least significantly reduce the scope of a costly/time-consuming Second Request. Greg was named a “Rising Star” by Super Lawyers in 2016 and 2017.

    Event Synopsis:
    Antitrust enforcement is one of the regulatory areas that have been put under the limelight since the new administration took over. The Trump administration has contradicted predictions of less activity and enforcement action and the political rhetoric regarding the topic has not abated. According to surveys, the previous year yields to be one of the busiest years for both the Department of Justice's Antitrust Division (DOJ) and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC).

    With the sudden yet significant shift in leadership, and the continuously evolving antitrust landscape, further developments, trends and updates are expected to surface in the next several months. More sophisticated scrutiny over merger enforcement and more focused structural remedies are only a few of those many developments and updates that are expected to take place.

    In this LIVE Webcast, a team of thought leaders and professionals brought together by The Knowledge Group will present key antitrust merger enforcement trends and developments under Trump’s administration. Speakers will also identify key development drivers and provide the audience with an in-depth discussion of the significant implications of these trends to the antitrust enforcement landscape. Best practices and practical tips will also be identified to avoid potential risks and pitfalls.

    Key topics include:
    • The Antitrust Merger Enforcement Landscape Under the Trump Administration
    • Merger Enforcement Actions Under the Trump Administration
    • Global Antitrust Merger Enforcement Developments and Updates
    • Heightened Focus on Structural Remedies
