Webinar on Antitrust in the Next Administration
When: December 8, 2020, 12:00-1:00 P.M.
With a new administration on the horizon in Washington, D.C., we can expect major changes in many areas of law and policy. But what about antitrust? There have been a flurry of reports and proposals for how the Biden administration should handle antitrust issues, but very few concrete indications about what antitrust enforcement will look like in 2021 and beyond. Will the House Majority Report serve as the blueprint for aggressive reforms, or can we expect smaller departures from the status quo? This panel of leading antitrust experts will answer these questions, including discussing some of the findings from the recent GAI Report on the Digital Economy, and make predictions about what antitrust enforcement will look like in the next administration.
