WELCOME to the April issue of The Antitrust Source. This issue features the Enforcement Officials' Roundtable Conference, one of the highlights of the March 2009 ABA Section of Antitrust Law Spring Meeting. In addition to this lively discussion, this issue includes an article by Sean Gates with insights on what we might expect from President Obama's antitrust enforcers, and an article by Ilene Gotts and Étienne Renaudeau with proposals for improving the U.S. merger enforcement guidelines. Continuing our focus on antitrust in the current economic environment, Mark Katz, Anita Banicevic, and Jim Dinning provide a Canadian perspective on antitrust in the financial crisis, Darren Tucker and Kevin Yingling consider the effect of the economy on risk-shifting provisions in merger agreements, and the Paper Trail features a working paper about the agencies' merger review of firms in financial distress.
