Second Annual Antitrust & Tech Conference: Reinvigorating Antitrust Enforcement in Digital Markets: Issues & Prospects

December 8, 2020 • Webinar

Starts: 10:00 AM (EST)
Ends: 1:00 PM (EST)

Can current antitrust enforcement tools address the increasing prominence of digital markets? How might proposed antitrust policy reforms affect digital markets and the enforcement agencies? 

Please join us for the Second Annual Antitrust & Tech Conference co-hosted by the George Washington University Competition Law Center and Crowell & Moring, which will focus on how antitrust enforcement and proposed reforms may impact tech-driven economies. 

Leading enforcers, academics, and practitioners will explore the challenges U.S. and global competition authorities face in enforcing current laws, the legislative and regulatory prospects and choices for institutional change, and how U.S. and global competition authorities may prioritize major initiatives. We will conclude with a roundtable that will reflect on the discussions in the first two panels, focusing on whether and what type of reform is needed, and identifying the most promising paths to effective enforcement, both within the current framework and through major legislative and institutional changes.
