Your Suppliers or Competitors

January 10, 2012
12:00 – 1:00 pm ET
The Corporate Counseling Committee is pleased to present this program which will address timely and practical issues that in-house and outside counsel must consider when they receive requests for interviews, subpoenas, or civil investigative demands from the antitrust agencies in connection with an investigation of another party’s conduct or transaction. Topics will include:

  • the reasons that the agencies contact competitors and customers, and the different methods that the agencies use to collect information;
  • the risks and opportunities presented by agency inquiries;
  • the confidentiality rules that apply to information provided by third parties;
  • best practices for preparing for interviews or responding to information requests;
  • what to tell your business team; and
  • how to interact with the parties under investigation.

 

Panelists:
Michael Moiseyev, Federal Trade Commission
Suzanne Wachsstock, American Express
David Wheeler, Verizon
Ronan Harty, Davis Polk & Wardwell

Eric Stock, Co-Chair of the Corporate Counseling Committee, will serve as moderator.
