The Steering Committee welcomes a select group of leading antitrust litigators – plaintiff, defendant and in-house counsel – from across the United States, who have been personally selected and specialize in competition litigation matters. This Forum provides an opportunity to discuss pressing issues, learn how others address these problems, and identify solutions.
Using candid, seminar-style discussion, the group explores common concerns and engages in meaningful dialogue on the most noteworthy and provocative matters in competition litigation.
This elite group, comprised of experts in the field, personally nominates all invitees and develops the Agenda, which forms the basis of our discussions.
