LSTA - Antitrust Issues in Syndicated Loan Transactions

November 8, 2018 • Webinar

Starts: 4:00 PM (EST)
Ends: 5:15 PM (EST)

Crowell & Moring panelists will discuss antitrust compliance issues for both US and European syndicated loan transactions. The session is particularly timely as the European Commission is currently reviewing potential antitrust concerns raised by syndicated lending arrangements with plans to issue a report by year end. When the Commission launched this review, it noted that syndicated lending “exhibits close cooperation between market participants in opaque or in transparent settings, such as over-the-counter (OTC) activities, which are particularly vulnerable to anti-competitive conduct.” Experienced antitrust and lending experts will: 
  • Outline the legal landscape for competition law issues in the US and European loan markets
  • Provide practical insights to minimize potential antitrust risk when originating and syndicating, administering or enforcing a syndicated loan arrangement
  • Analyze the ground-rules for minimizing risk exposure from activities that may inadvertently run afoul of U.S. or European antitrust limitations
