We are taking our popular Antitrust Hot Topics program to the West Coast. Offered in both Orange County and Los Angeles, this CLE seminar is designed to bring attendees up to date on new developments in antitrust.

Topics include:

Blockchain/Distribution Chain
We will discuss the application of antitrust principles to the recent growing use of blockchain technology, with suggestions of mitigating antitrust risks that apply to traditional areas of distribution as well.

  • Jeremy Heep, Partner, Pepper Hamilton LLP
  • Robin P. Sumner, Partner, Pepper Hamilton LLP

No-Poach Provisions and Merger Enforcement
Since the Department of Justice and Federal Trade Commission published their 2016 joint guidance on human resources issues, politicians, federal and state enforcement agencies, and private plaintiffs have been actively challenging employee nonsolicitation provisions.

Separately, we will address vertical mergers following the AT&T/Time Warner merger and other hot topics in merger enforcement.

  • Jan P. Levine, Partner, Pepper Hamilton LLP
  • Barbara T. Sicalides, Partner, Pepper Hamilton LLP
  • A. Christopher Young, Partner, Pepper Hamilton LLP
