Robinson Bradshaw hosted the North Carolina Bar Association's 2017 Antitrust & Complex Business Disputes Law Program, "Hot Topics for North Carolina Antitrust Lawyers and In-House Counsel." Speakers included representatives from the Department of Justice and the Federal Trade Commission, and the program was highlighted by a keynote address from North Carolina Attorney General Josh Stein. Two Robinson Bradshaw attorneys also spoke at sessions throughout the morning:
- Best Practices for Communicating with Competitors, 9-10 a.m. featuring Greg Skidmore
A business client calls you with the following question: “I will be meeting with some of our competitors. Any concerns?” This situation — which can arise in many contexts, including trade associations, industry conferences and potential business deals — occurs frequently, but is fraught with peril. This panel explored best practices for counseling clients and protecting the company from antitrust risks.
- Program on Antitrust Class Actions, 10-11 a.m. featuring Nathan Chase
Putative class actions are a particularly high-stakes form of antitrust litigation. In this program, a panel of experienced antitrust class-action litigators reviewed recent developments in the law of class actions, with specific focus on complex issues that recur in antitrust matters.
