In these uncertain times, increasingly coordinated global antitrust enforcement dictates that companies refresh their compliance strategies and be prepared to defend vigorously against allegations of wrongdoing.

Mayer Brown's Antitrust & Competition practice is holding two complimentary roundtable programs focusing on the areas of cartel enforcement and civil litigation, merger review and compliance, including an analysis of the likely changes the new administration will bring to these enforcement areas.

The roundtable discussion will include such topics as:

  • Similarities and differences among US and European competition law regimes and their leniency programs
  • A case study of scenarios that can arise in a cross-border investigation
  • Defending civil litigation prompted by government investigations
  • Handling simultaneous cartel investigations and private antitrust damage actions in multiple jurisdictions
  • An overview of the US merger review process and revised merger procedures
  • A review of recent significant merger enforcement investigations and cases
  • The potential impact of the new US administration on cartel investigations, mergers, unilateral conduct and other areas of antitrust law
