U.S. antitrust law is experiencing a moment of historical change. Through the newly released Merger Guidelines, proposed changes to the HSR rules, and the rebirth of Section 5, the U.S. Agencies have brought a decidedly more activist enforcement agenda to Washington. Across town, the Supreme Court's recent opinions in Twombly, Iqbal, Leegin, Linkline, and American Needle demonstrate a similar intent to reshape antitrust litigation for the next generation. Developments in Congress and the lower federal and state courts have also greatly impacted U.S. practice.

This teleconference will seek to synthesize these recent changes to predict what lies ahead for practictioners and parties in the years to come. Join us for what promises to be a lively discussion of trends on issues such as the future of merger control, the use of economics at the Agencies and the federal courts, discovery, class certification, and indirect purchaser standing.
