Antitrust Enforcement in 2021: What to Expect from the Biden Administration and Global Enforcers

February 18, 2021


O’Melveny is hosting a one-hour CLE discussion on the Biden-Harris antitrust agenda and global trends on enforcement.

Our panelists will take an in-depth look at the latest developments in enforcement and regulation, with an emphasis on the new administration, and answer these questions:

  • Monopolization: Where are the latest technology monopolization cases headed? What do they mean for your company?
  • Mergers: How do agencies view vertical mergers and the acquisition of nascent technology firms? Do revisions to the Horizontal Merger Guidelines lie ahead? Where do agencies stand on alternative dispute resolution?
  • IP and Antitrust Interface: What factors go into the antitrust analysis of standard essential patents?
  • Criminal Enforcement: Will there be more aggressive criminal enforcement? What sectors are likely to be affected (labor markets, securities, health care, food and consumer goods)? Will recent trends, such as using Deferred Prosecution Agreements, continue?
  • Global Perspectives: How will trends in the EU and China impact enforcement in the US? How will US practices affect other jurisdictions?
