Receiving a subpoena or Civil Investigative Demand from the Federal Trade Commission, Department of Justice's Antitrust Division, or state antitrust agencies can present fraught situations for companies and in-house counsel. They can precipitate costly, time-intensive, and often high-stakes negotiations, internal investigations, and document and data productions; under certain circumstances, they can also result in litigation, be it with the government or with private actors who tracked the investigation and asserted claims based on harm caused by alleged anticompetitive conduct.
Join us on December 13 at 12pm ET/9am PT as Baker Botts Antitrust Partners Christopher Wilson and Stacy Turner discuss how in-house counsel can be prepared to manage inquiries from antitrust regulators.
Discussion topics will include:
- How to implement antitrust compliance programs that can help identify and forestall potential antitrust issues within your company;
- Best practices for internal investigations if you identify conduct that may give rise to potential antitrust liability;
- What to expect, and what to do, if you receive a subpoena or CID from state or federal antitrust investigators; and
- How to handle potential or actual follow-on litigation against the government and/or private actors.
