ABA Section of Antitrust Law 60th Annual Antitrust Spring Meeting

Washington, DC
28 March 2012
Hosted By: the ABA Section of Antitrust Law

Members of NERA's Global Antitrust and Competition Practice joined an expert faculty at the ABA Section of Antitrust Law's three-day annual spring meeting in Washington, DC on 28-30 March 2012 for a comprehensive review of developments in antitrust and consumer protection law.

On the first day of the meeting, Dr. Ramsey Shehadeh, Senior Vice President and Chair of NERA's Antitrust and Competition Practice, chaired and moderated a panel session entitled "Challenges Facing Competitive Analysis of Intellectual Property Acquisitions."  The panel -- which included NERA Special Consultant and Indiana University Professor Michael Baye -- addressed recent advances contributing to evaluating or proving the likely competitive effects of mergers on innovation.

Also on the first day, NERA Senior Vice President Dr. Christine Meyer participated in a panel discussion entitled "Crashing the Tide -- The Rise in Merger Litigation." With merger litigation on the rise, disgruntled competitors and customers are increasingly embracing Section 7 of the Clayton Antitrust Act as an offensive tool. Dr. Meyer and her co-panelists discussed the strategies and outcomes of recent merger cases.
