This is a new handbook on Section 8 of the Clayton Act. This new Handbook provides history, background, and practical guidance on the application of Section 8 of the Clayton Act, which regulates "corporate interlocks"--where two competing corporations share one or more directors in common. The Handbook provides a concise history of Section 8, discusses common procedural issues that arise in litigation involving Section 8 claims, summarizes the interplay between Section 8 and other regulatory schemes, and finally, discusses practical guidance and common pitfalls for practitioners.
