Antitrust Law for the General Practititoner: A Trap for the Unwary

Speakers: Robert M. Langer, Suzanne Wachsstock of Wiggin & Dana and Jim Sicilian of Day, Berry & Howard

This seminar is a must for any in-house or outside attorney who advises clients in virtually any industry in which they interact with competitors, suppliers, or customers - from health care and manufacturing to biotech and high tech. Learn about the many areas in which a non-antitrust lawyer may come across tricky antitrust issues in everyday practice, and not even know it.

Three experienced antitrust practitioners will discuss about a dozen (plus or minus) situations from their own experience that highlight some of the toughest issues and offer some tools for dealings with them, including:

  • Jont ventures and competitor collaborations: What should you look out for?
  • Territorial exclusivity and customer noncompetes: When are they okay?
  • Due diligence in merger negotiations: What kind of information can/can't be exchanged?
