Antitrust Practitioner Survey

Posted by D. Daniel Sokol

Last summer I created an online antitrust practitioner survey to gauge the current state of antitrust in a number of different substantive areas.  The results that came back with 234 responses were interesting.  Now that I have received Institutional Review Board permission (University rules) for additional testing on "human research subjects", I am in the process of interviewing elite antitrust practitioners, as measured by Chambers ranked lawyers in the US.  The goal is to see if elite practitioners have a different sense of the state of antitrust.  So far I have come away very impressed with the depth and sophistication of nearly all of the interviewees.  What is perhaps more interesting is that I have talked with some of the most interesting, charming, and cerebral people I have ever met.  I still have  another 80 or so interviews to do.  Hopefully I will have a write up of my results by January.
