American Antitrust Institute (AAI) hosts its first International Antitrust Roundtable, February 8, 2017

On February 8, 2017, the American Antitrust Institute (AAI) will host its first International Antitrust Roundtable where experts from business, academia, law, and government in the U.S. and abroad will gather to discuss major competition enforcement and policy issues on the global antitrust agenda.

As competition enforcement agencies in the U.S. and abroad revise their international and/or intellectual property (IP) guidelines, and a new administration takes over in Washington, the Roundtable will survey a number of hot issues and controversies. These include the extraterritorial and overlapping application of U.S. and foreign competition law, as well as some of the critical IP/competition issues facing antitrust authorities around the globe. In the process, the Roundtable will take stock of growing concerns over foreign jurisdictions’ due process standards (or lack thereof). These not only raise independent “good governance” issues but also may influence the debate over comity and substantive international antitrust and IP standards. 

Speakers include:  Eduardo Perez Motta (keynote), Steve Calkins, John DeQ. Briggs, Eleanor Fox, Kristen Limarzi, Henri Piffaut, Jorge Contreras, Lisa Kimmel,  Daryl Lim, Suzanne Munck, Don Baker, Maurits Dolmans, Liz Kraus, Dina Kallay, and Greg Slater.
