A Well-Oiled Machine? Federal/State Enforcement in the Oil and Gas Sector
1 PM EDT
Federal and stat antitrust enforcers sometimes disagree.
This program will consider the instructive history of antitrust enforcement in the oil and gas sector, focusing particularly on the instances where federal and state enforcers have diverged in their decision-making.
We will look in particular at the California AG's recent Valero action, discussing how the state AG took a different course from the federal enforcer. We will also discuss how best to counsel clients in a world where state AGs may take a different path than federal enforcers.
