The New Vertical Merger Enforcement

Event Description

Pre-registration is closed. If you would still like to attend, email Ashley Bollig at for the remote instructions.

Two former DOJ trial attorneys and a prominent healthcare economist will discuss the evolution of vertical merger enforcement, with a special emphasis on mergers in the healthcare industry.  Peter Schwingler and Anna Sallstrom served on the DOJ's trial team in AT&T/Time Warner before joining the Minneapolis offices of Stinson and Faegre, respectively.  Dr. Dov Rothman, a managing principal at Analysis Group, has significant experience in healthcare mergers and regularly advises on vertical issues.  Their CLE will address the core theories of liability in vertical merger cases – including raising rivals' costs and vertical foreclosure – as well as the procompetitive benefits of vertical transactions.  The panel will cover the AT&T/Time Warner trial, the DOJ and FTC's joint vertical merger guidelines, and the unique challenges of vertical merger enforcement in the healthcare space.
