Antitrust Law & Litigation XIII: International Enforcement & Its Political Underpinnings

Del Mar

The Thirteenth Annual Sedona Conference® on Antitrust Law & Litigation features another blue-ribbon, international faculty including an FTC Commissioner, the IT, Internet and Consumer Electronics Head of Unit from the European Commission, Antitrust Unit, a U.S. federal district court trial judge, a representative from the California Dept. of Justice, in-house counsel from Microsoft, and leading practitioners and academics from the US and the UK and from both sides of the V.
This year’s conference will focus on the spread of U.S. antitrust laws to the EU and beyond, and examine how the US and the EU often treat the same conduct differently, and allow for different enforcement mechanisms and procedures. The underlying thread, as the dialogue moves from subject to subject, is how the political underpinnings of antitrust enforcement influence the enforcement activities within different countries.
Important topics to be covered during this year’s invite-only program include:
(1) Global Case Law Update;
(2) Merger Enforcement;
(3) Abuse of Dominance;
(4) Vertical Conduct;
(5) Cartels;
(6) Private Damage Actions in the EU; and
(7) The Future of Global Antitrust Enforcement.
