The FTC and DOJ's approach to antitrust merger review and enforcement is rapidly evolving. Changes in policies and novel enforcement actions have made it clear that there's a new normal when it comes to their priorities. In this brave new world, merger review and enforcement decisions won't be based solely on conventional market-based analysis, but will also involve an assessment of the broader societal impacts of a transaction. Join these experts:

  • Beau Buffier, Partner, Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati
  • Stephen Libowsky, Partner, Manatt, Phelps & Phillips, LLP
  • John Snyder, Partner, Alston & Bird LLP

Among other topics, this program will cover:

  • Overview of FTC & DOJ policy and priority changes
  • Industries and issues under scrutiny
  • Implications for HSR merger review
  • Resolving FTC or DOJ challenges in the new environment
  • Post-closing challenges to deals - a growing risk?
  • Litigating with the antitrust agencies
