Event summary

Lawyers counseling businesses should have a solid foundation in the principles of antitrust law and an understanding of the latest antitrust developments in order to advise their clients effectively. The consequences of running afoul of antitrust rules can be costly: federal and state government enforcement actions, jail time for executives, treble damages litigation, class actions and adverse publicity are all risks when companies step over the line.

Gain the tools necessary to help your clients avoid making costly mistakes without stopping them from engaging in lawful activity. Attend this program and learn when to say “no” and when to say “yes”, providing practical answers to the antitrust questions your clients ask.
