Emerging Antitrust Issues Amid the COVID-19 Pandemic: What Companies Must Know and Do
Recording Available: Friday, November 20, 2020
The COVID-19 pandemic is reshaping antitrust law enforcement across the globe. Recognizing the need for a closer cooperation among private businesses, the US government seems to be more flexible now in reviewing COVID-19-related competitor collaborations. In April, both the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) announced the expedited seven-day evaluation procedure, which typically takes months for traditional business reviews.
Despite the perceived flexibility of the government, companies should not be complacent, as the DOJ and the FTC have stressed their continuous crackdown on unfair competition practices.
Join a panel of key thought leaders and practitioners assembled by The Knowledge Group as they present an in-depth discussion of the emerging trends and developments in antitrust law enforcement in the current COVID-19-stricken landscape. Speakers will analyze critical issues and offer effective compliance tips and strategies in this evolving legal climate.
Key topics include:
- Enforcement Priority Changes Due to COVID-19
- Emerging Antitrust Issues
- Risk Management Strategies
- Best Compliance Practices
