Lawyers counseling businesses need to have a solid foundation in principles of antitrust law and an understanding of the latest antitrust developments in order to advise their clients smartly.  The consequences of running afoul of antitrust rules can be costly: federal and state government enforcement actions, jail time for executives, treble damages litigation, class actions, and adverse publicity are all risks when companies step over the line.

Do you have the tools needed to help your clients avoid making costly mistakes?  View this program and you will be able to provide practical answers to the antitrust questions your clients will ask.  Addressing current hot topics in antitrust counseling and compliance and refreshing practitioners’ understanding of key principles, this program will cover distribution, marketing, mergers and acquisitions, intellectual property licensing, and government enforcement, as well as compliance and ethics topics.  Hear practical advice on what works and what doesn’t, and gain the edge needed to effectively represent your clients.

What steps can companies take before consummating a deal without being charged with gun-jumping?
