PLI To Present Its 48th Annual Advanced Antitrust Seminar

Thursday, January 1, 2009 - 01:00

The Practising Law Institute has planned its annual Advanced Antitrust Seminar 2009: Distribution and Marketing for Monday, February 2 and Tuesday, February 3 to be held in New York City at the PLI Center on 810 Seventh Avenue. The program will start at 9 a.m. each day and conclude at 5 p.m. on day one and 4:45 p.m. on day two.

The faculty will be composed of experienced antitrust counselors and litigators, representatives of the department of Justice, the Federal Trade Commission, and state attorneys general including Alicia J. Batts, Proskauer Rose LLP; Robert L. Hubbard, director of litigation, Antitrust Bureau, Office of the New York Attorney General; Scott Martin, Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP; David L. Meyer, deputy assistant attorney general, Antitrust Division, United States Department of Justice; M. Howard Morse, Drinker Biddle & Reath LLP; David P. Wales, acting bureau director, Federal Trade Commission; and Mark D. Whitener, senior counsel, Competition Law & Policy, GE Corporate Legal.

Antitrust practitioners know it isn't always easy to identify the line between anti-competitive behavior and pro-competitive investment. This program will provide workable strategies to deal with complex distribution and marketing issues while reviewing the latest trends in the industry. Both in-house and outside counsel who deal with distribution and marketing issues on a regular or even occasional basis need practical advice on what works and what doesn't at both the federal and state levels.
