Room 290, Stanford Law School
Technology innovation raises a host of complex legal and compliance challenges, including with respect to global antitrust laws.
High-tech mergers, abuse of dominance, the use of contractual provisions to improve market position, information sharing inside and outside of the trade association context, and the rise of new digital platforms are among a few of the triggers that can give rise to heightened antitrust scrutiny by global regulators, including the US DOJ or the FTC. Non-compliance with antitrust laws, or even the investigation of certain business practices, can cause serious disruptions, including staggering fines, penalties, and litigation costs.
This session, the Fourth Annual Kirkland & Ellis Law Forum, will bring together academics, practitioners, and regulators to review the intersection of technology and antitrust law and the ways in which technology companies can manage antitrust compliance risks, regardless of size or business focus.
