International Antitrust: What rules and whose standards?
Companies that operate globally today are subject to the jurisdiction of more than 130 competition agencies world-wide, as opposed to a handful of agencies just a couple of decades ago. Some of these agencies maintain the goal of preventing practices that harm consumers and the competitive process itself. Other agencies, however, may be guided by different goals and follow a different set of procedural guidelines. This panel will discuss the intersection between antitrust and trade as these global trends in antitrust enforcement are developed and implemented.
