67th Antitrust Law Spring MeetingMarch 30, 2019
Antitrust partners Ken O’Rourke and Ian Simmons recently served as moderators for the American Bar Association’s Spring Meeting event, which took place from March 26-29 at the Marriot Marquis in Washington DC. This event is the largest antitrust conference in the world, drawing more than 3,300 lawyers, economists, enforcers, and academics, from more than 60 countries.
O’Rourke moderated the panel, “Global Class Action Developments,” held on Wednesday, March 27. The panel included four speakers from four different countries and touched on topics including recent updates on antitrust class actions in the US and Canada, the expanding redress practice in the UK and Europe, and potentially game-changing legislative proposals. O’Rourke also chaired the podcast, “Antitrust Developments in Asia,” during the spring meeting event along with Brent Snyder, CEO of the Hong Kong Competition Commission, and other speakers from Asia.
Simmons, who co-chairs the firm’s antitrust practice group, served as a moderator for the panel titled, “Antitrust ‘Markman’ Hearings: Cartel Class Certification Battles.” The four US-based speakers discussed best practices for plaintiffs and defendants in class certification battles.
