Simmons to Moderate Panel at the ABA’s Section of Antitrust Law Spring MeetingMarch 28-30, 2012
Spring Meeting of the American Bar Association (ABA) Section of Antitrust Law on March 28-30, 2012 in Washington, DC. The Spring Meeting is the largest annual conference for antitrust lawyers, who hail from all over the world.
Simmons is moderating the Meeting’s first panel, entitled “Forging Expert Testimony to Prevail.” Participants include Kevin Murphy, George J. Stigler Distinguished Service Professor of Economics at the University of Chicago; Sharon Nelles of Sullivan & Cromwell; Douglas Bernheim, Professor of Economics at Stanford University; and Susan Kupfer of Glancy Binkow & Goldberg LLP. The panel is described as follows:
The preparation of expert testimony—from the Rule 26 Report through deposition and examination at trial—is a mission-critical facet of antitrust litigation. Factual and econometric showings on injury and damages are critical battlegrounds and can facilitate settlement, lead to impressive jury awards, or lay the groundwork for reversal on appeal.
The ABA’s annual Spring Meeting is the indispensable meeting place for competition and consumer protection lawyers and economists the world over. For additional information, view the Meeting website here.
