Live Teleconference And Webinar Focus: Cross-Border Antitrust Enforcement Efforts

Friday, August 1, 2008 - 01:00

Antirust enforcement authorities around the world are increasingly coordinating their efforts with other countries. As a result, corporations who are investigated in the United States for anti-competitive behavior face numerous other investigations in the European Union, Canada, and other countries. These corporations also face class action lawsuits in the United States

This program, presented by the Knowledge Congress, is scheduled for Tuesday, September 23 from 1 to 3 p.m. The featured speakers will be: Mark Rosman, Assistant Chief, National Criminal Enforcement Section, Antitrust Division, U.S. Department of Justice; Albert A. Foer, President, American Antitrust Institute; and Kirby D. Behre, partner, Paul, Hastings, Janofsky & Walker, and William A. Isaacson, partner, Boies, Schiller & Flexner LLP.

The agenda will provide a systematic overview of cutting-edge issues associated with these investigations, including: current enforcement tools, including search warrants and arrests of executives; the Department of Justice's approach to encouraging corporations to cooperate with the government's investigation; the ripple effect that an agreement to plead guilty in one country has in other jurisdictions; the different ways companies can respond to government investigations; the impact that cooperation with a government investigation can have on civil suits; steps that can be taken to minimize exposure; privacy issues and evidentiary issues associated with moving documents out of the EU and into the U.S.
