Antitrust Enforcement in 2021: Practical Guide for Companies
Recording Available: Friday, January 22, 2021
With today's rapidly evolving legal and political landscape, complicated by the COVID-19 crisis, the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) Antitrust Division and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) continue to aggressively enforce the antitrust laws across industries to respond to concerns about rising prices, loss of choice and privacy, and industry consolidation.
These trends, along with current and anticipated enforcement actions, are important for companies to understand as they look forward to 2021. Companies must be proactive in realigning their practices with the current antitrust regulatory standards to ensure sound compliance and manage legal risk.
