    Vertically Challenged: Antitrust and Integrated Industries

    1 PM EST

    The AT&T/Time Warner and CVS/Aetna mergers bring vertical integration back into the antitrust spotlight. But such vertical issues are nothing new, with ramifications across numerous industries and legal theories–from unilateral conduct to joint conduct and mergers, and from telecom/media, to healthcare/pharma, energy, and tech. When a competitor is also a customer or supplier, can I increase price? Can I share information? Can I terminate? Can I merge? Our expert panel will explore the antitrust pitfalls faced by firms in vertically-integrated industries, with an emphasis on identifying and/or mitigating those risks from both an outside counsel and in-house perspective.
