Competition enforcement has spread around the globe in recent decades as competition agencies come of age in developing and emerging economies.  MSBA antitrust council member Michael Jacobs recently returned to the U.S. after spending two years with one of Latin America’s oldest and most respected competition enforcers, the Fiscalía Nacional Económica in Chile.  He will speak about competition enforcement trends in Latin America and in Chile, specifically the challenges facing competition agencies in small emerging economies, competition agencies’ strategies for addressing those challenges, and his experiences as a U.S. lawyer working in a foreign legal system. 

Breakfast will begin at 7:45 a.m. followed by the CLE program from 8:00 – 9:00 a.m.  Special meal requests need to be received no later than Monday, April 21. 

This CLE will be held at the offices of Greene Espel PLLP, at 222 South Ninth Street, Suite 2200 in downtown Minneapolis. Greene Espel’s offices are accessible by the skyway; the closest parking is in the Energy Center ramp located at 9th Street and 3rd Avenue.

Michael Jacobs is a St. Paul-based antitrust attorney and commercial litigator.  For the past two years, he lived and worked in Santiago de Chile, where he was an attorney-advisor with the FNE and participated on many of the agency’s highest profile enforcement and policy matters.  He also co-taught law and economics at the Universidad de Chile.
