Baker Botts is delighted to co-sponsor the 15th Annual Georgetown Antitrust Symposium. In light of global events, this year's Symposium will be held virtually, on Tuesday, Sept. 14.
We are pleased to announce that the one-day virtual seminar will feature keynote addresses by Olivier Guersent, Director General for Competition, European Commission, and Richard Powers, Acting Assistant Attorney General for Antitrust at the U.S. Department of Justice.
This preeminent program will include the annual Global Enforcers' Roundtable, a signature panel of enforcers who will report in on antitrust developments, insights and projections. Featured panelists will include Reiko Aoki (Commissioner of the Japan Fiar Trade Commission), Cani Fernández (President of the Spanish Competition Authority), Alexandre Cordeiro Macedo (President of the Brazilian Administrative Council for Economic Defense), Andreas Mundt (President of the German Federal Cartel Office) in addition to more prominent professionals.
