Government and Private Multidistrict Litigation

Event Description

Deadline to Register:  September 24, 2018

Lunch and registration will start at 11:45 am.

Program Description: 

In major antitrust litigation, frequently the same alleged anticompetitive conduct can draw the attention of both government enforcers and private class action plaintiffs.  When this happens, the public and private plaintiffs have an obvious interest in some degree of cooperation.  Similarly, by holistically considering both the private litigation and government investigations, defense attorneys can try to reduce the burden of duplicative discovery and consider the implications of both actions when attempting to negotiate resolutions for their clients.  This CLE will explore such litigation, focusing especially on the way in which parallel private and public antitrust litigation interact.
