    Come Get Your Overcharge: Should Illinois Brick Be Reconstructed?

    3 PM EST

    U.S. antitrust officials and state attorneys general recently have questioned the efficacy and viability of the Supreme Court’s rule against indirect purchaser actions under Illinois Brick.  But other jurisdictions have already developed competition rules to address how direct and indirect purchasers seek redress for antitrust harm.  In this program, a panel of global competition lawyers from Australia, Canada, and the European Union will discuss how their jurisdictions address this issue—and what the U.S. can learn from their experiences should Illinois Brick get reconstructed.

    I am a litigator specializing in antitrust and complex commercial litigation. I represent clients in a variety of industries -- including information technology, health care, communications, and pharmaceutical -- in federal and state court and in investigations before the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), Federal Trade Commission (FTC), and state enforcement authorities in antitrust and other litigation matters. In addition to litigation and government investigations, I also counsel clients on a wide range of antitrust and related issues, particularly antitrust issues in the high-tech sector and at the growing intersection of antitrust and intellectual property law.
