    Alive or Dead?: Common Ownership, Coordinated Effects, and Behavioral Remedies

    12 PM EST

    Please join the Mergers and Acquisitions Committee for a panel that explores whether topics are “alive” (hot and on the up), or “dead” (cold and losing momentum): 

       • Common Ownership – New theories worry that ownership of multiple competing firms may present antitrust concerns. Is this worry real and growing?
       • Coordinated Effects – The FTC successfully blocked the Tronox/Cristal merger in December 2018 on the basis of a coordinated effects theory. Does this success mark a return of these theories?
       • Behavioral Remedies – A number of recent closely-watched mergers have been cleared with behavioral – rather than structural – remedies, such as the Northrop/Orbital ATK and Lahey-Beth Israel.

    FREE:  Antitrust Section Members, Government, Non-profit Employees, Students, $25 Other Non-Members.
