  • FTC May Waste Time Updating Price-Bias Guide, Attys Say
    November 29, 2012 — Law360

    Daniel Sasse, Orange County-based antitrust partner, speaks to Law360 about the Federal Trade Commission's choices now that they have a chance to update 20-year-old maligned price discrimination law guidelines. He notes that as long as any revisions are similar to the ones made by federal antitrust agencies to update horizontal merger guidelines in 2010, there should not be many problems for businesses.


  • Q & A - What's Hot, What's Not: What practice area(s) is (are) expected to be driving next year’s business/growth? And which area(s) will be the most challenged?
    January 23, 2012 — Orange County Business Journal

    Partner Daniel A. Sasse, head of the firm's Orange County office and member of the Antitrust Group, talks to the Orange County Business Journal about the areas of the law that he anticipates will grow in 2012.

    According to Sasse, "We expect government investigations to continue to play a significant and even increasing role in 2012. While always popular in Orange County, IP litigation and prosecution will continue to be strong practice areas. We have seen a significant increase in consumer class action suits challenging representations made by manufacturers and marketers, especially in the 'green advertising' arena."
