Preparing and Trying an Antitrust Case Against the Government

In the past few years, the government has challenged several mergers in court, and the new administration has indicated its intention to be even more aggressive in the future. As a result, antitrust trial practitioners as well as merger lawyers should be prepared to meet the challenges associated with trying to persuade the government not to sue, and trying the case when the government's concerns cannot be resolved in a manner acceptable to the client. The Section of Antitrust is pleased to offer the 2009 Antitrust Litigation Course: Preparing and Trying an Antitrust Case Against the Government, which will bring together some of the leading antitrust trial lawyers to demonstrate - on the basis of a fictitious merger of two companies in a high technology industry - the complex interplay of substance, strategy, negotiations, and remedies that is essential not only to merger litigation, but to antitrust litigation in general. We kindly invite you to participate in this special event on October 15 and 16 at the Blackstone Hotel in Chicago. For more information see here.
