Our internal experts, together with our network of affiliated experts from academia, industry, and government, offer our clients exceptional breadth and depth of expertise.
Given the increased cross-border coordination among enforcement agencies related to antitrust violations, and the potential for increased private litigation in which plaintiffs allege damages, companies are increasingly focused on compliance and risk mitigation. While antitrust damages claims are common place in the U.S., attention to damages quantification is also growing in other parts of the world, particularly in Europe, where a large number of cartel cases have been reported. Last year, the European Unionâ€™s Damages Directive was implemented to help victims of anti-competitive conduct exercise their rights to full compensation.
Considering the significant changes imposed by the Directive and the ever-changing competition landscape, it is imperative for companies to keep abreast of recent regulatory updates and to establish effective antitrust compliance programs in order to minimize risks.
In this LIVE Webcast, a panel of distinguished professionals and thought leaders organized by The Knowledge Group will provide an overview of the latest trends and critical issues with respect to antitrust damages. Speakers will also discuss economic and legal considerations, risk mitigation techniques and best practices for managing an effective antitrust compliance program.
Key issues that will be covered in this course are:
â€˘ Antitrust Damages â€“ An Overview
â€˘ Recent Changes and Developments
â€˘ Economic and Legal Considerations
â€˘ Litigation Trends and Challenges
â€˘ Potential Implications for the Competition Litigation Landscape
â€˘ Risk Assessment Strategies
â€˘ Best Practices
