Sports and Antitrust: Breaking the Ice
12:30 PM EST
This session will provide an overview of the latest developments in sports and competition law in the EU. It will provide an overview of recent decisions and the implications they have for sports federations, and provide insight into ongoing investigations and cases. With sports now in danger of losing its "special" character, the panel will consider the broader lessons practitioners can take from decisions in this sector, and how they may be relevant to other areas of competition law. The panel will also consider if the experience in the EU has any implications on antitrust enforcement in the U.S.
This event is Sponsored by Trade, Sports, & Professional Associations Committee and Co-Sponsored by the International Committee.
