Effective Antitrust Compliance During the Covid-19 Crisis

July 21, 2020

U.S. antitrust enforcement agencies have recently encouraged businesses to engage in collaboration efforts to help respond to the COVID-19 crisis, and rolled out a process to provide agency guidance for these efforts. At the same time, these agencies have warned they will continue to aggressively prosecute “hard core” antitrust violations such as price fixing (including agreements to pass on material price increases), bid rigging, market/territory/customer allocations and colluding on employee compensation and recruiting. Historically, major civil and criminal antitrust cases have arisen after periods of disruption when companies were scrambling to deal with supply and demand shocks, such as those caused by financial crises and national disasters.

This webinar program discusses best practices in deploying effective antitrust compliance programs to navigate the boundaries of lawful and unlawful collaboration, detecting potential antitrust violations and what to do if a violation is uncovered.
