WEBINAR: Antitrust in Transition – What to Expect in the First 100 Days — C&M's First 100 Days Series

February 2, 2017 • Webinar

Starts: 1:00 PM (EST)
Ends: 2:00 PM (EST)

Federal antitrust enforcement ramped up significantly during Obama’s second term, pushing the envelope of the FTC’s authority under Section 5, challenging mergers at a steady clip and alleging broad theories of harm in conduct cases brought under Section One of the Sherman Act. Will the Trump administration change course? If so, should we expect an immediate impact? How much will personnel decisions affect the course of events?

Key topics:

  • Taking stock: where are we now? What happens before new officials at the DOJ and FTC are nominated and confirmed?
  • Is now a good time to do your deal? What will successful deal advocacy look like in the short and longer term?
  • Will the new leadership take the more laissez-faire approach historically associated with Republican administrations, or will the new era bring something new entirely?
  • How will international and state regulators respond to a new federal approach?
  • How can companies take practical steps to manage risk in this uncertain environment?

Partners Joe Miller, Jeane Thomas, and Ryan Tisch will be speaking in this webinar.
