O'Melveny Participates in 13th Annual George Mason Law Review Symposium

February 4, 2010

On Thursday, February 4, 2010, O’Melveny co-sponsored the well-attended 13th Annual George Mason Law Review Symposium at the Willard InterContinental Hotel in Washington, DC. Partners Ian Simmons and Tom Brown participated as panelists, along with several leading economists. The discussion focused on two very relevant topics in antitrust litigation -economic analysis in class certification disputes and antitrust scrutiny of loyalty/incentive programs.

The Honorable Thomas F. Hogan, a highly respected District Judge with considerable antitrust experience, delivered the keynote address entitled "Advocacy and Strategy in Antitrust Cases".

The George Mason Law Review will publish materials later this summer; Simmons' piece, co-authored with Ted Snyder, the Dean of the University of Chicago Business School, is entitled "Proof of Common Impact in Antitrust Litigation: The Value of Regression Analysis."
