Antitrust Fundamentals CLE and Social

Event Description

Register By:  September 27, 2022

CLE 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM
Social 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM

There has been renewed focus on, and activity involving, the antitrust laws over the past several years.  In July, 2021, the Biden Administration issued an executive order highlighting its commitment to aggressive enforcement of the antitrust laws, both the DOJ and FTC are increasingly active and several major pieces of federal antitrust legislation are pending.  This three-hour program will provide a basic background in the antitrust laws to newcomers to the field and a good refresher for in house counsel and those who have some antitrust experience.  The program will cover both conduct and merger/acquisition topics.  The conduct topics will include what constitutes agreements under Section 1 of the Sherman Act, Horizontal Restraints, Vertical Restraints and monopolization under Section 2 of the Sherman Act.  The mergers and acquisition portion will focus on Section 7 of the Clayton Act, discussing factors that are considered by the agencies and courts in determining whether a proposed merger or acquisition is viewed as anticompetitive.  It also will address the pre-merger notification requirements of the Hart Scott Rodino Act.  Although the program will focus primarily on federal law, the Minnesota Antitrust Act will be addressed as well and an attorney with the Minnesota Attorney General’s office will be one of the speakers.  

Join us afterwards for our fall social. There will be networking food and beverages.


Minnesota State Bar Association 600 Nicollet Mall Suite 380, Minneapolis, MN 55402
