AAI International Antitrust Roundtable: Critical Issues in Global Antitrust - Comity, Intellectual Property, and Due Process

February 8, 2017 • Washington, D.C.

Starts: 9:00 AM (EST)
Ends: 5:00 PM (EST)
Site: National Press Club
Address: 529 14th St NW, Washington, D.C. View Map (view map)

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, it is an opportune time to survey a number of 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. 

The Roundtable will consist of an introductory review of key developments in the year, three panels, and a keynote luncheon address. Each panel is followed by a moderated discussion among the panelists and the audience. 

Antitrust Group Senior Counsel Lisa Kimmel is a panelist. Her topic: "Limitations on Patent Enforcement - A Comparative International Assessment."
