Global Antitrust Enforcement Symposium Tuesday, September 29, 2015

Georgetown Law presents

Global Antitrust Enforcement Symposium

Washington, DC

Tuesday, September 29, 2015

The Global Antitrust Enforcement Symposium is a leading forum for lawyers, policymakers, corporate executives, economists, and academics to address current issues in competition law and policy. The faculty includes current and former enforcement officials from the United States, European Commission, Germany, France, Brazil and Mexico. The faculty will focus on the areas of greatest concern to multinational enterprises: what is new in global merger enforcement; cartel enforcement and policy; the range of permissive and questionable vertical restraints by companies with and without market power; perspectives and best practices from leading in-house counsel; and “hot topics” on the global enforcement agency agendas.
