Competition Law and Responsible Business Conduct

June 19, 2015
Paris, France
Wiggin and Dana Partner Robert M. Langer will be participating in a panel on "Competition Law and Responsible Business Conduct" at the OECD Global Forum on Responsible Business Conduct. Mr. Langer will be the only U.S. antitrust lawyer on the panel.

During the panel, Mr. Langer will be discussing the favorable Business Review Letter (available at http://www.justice.gov/atr/public/busreview/216720.htm) that the firm obtained on behalf of the Fair Factories Clearinghouse ("FFC") from the U.S. Department of Justice Antitrust Division in 2006. The letter authorizes the FFC, consistent with antitrust principles, to collect and voluntary share information about workplace conditions in manufacturing facilities around the globe. Mr. Langer will also review the more general antitrust concerns that arise when competitors collaborate.
