ABA Section of Antitrust Law to host Global Seminar Series in Hong Kong

WASHINGTON, Oct. 15, 2018 — With antitrust trials set to become a new chapter in Hong Kong’s competition enforcement regime, The American Bar Association Section for Antitrust Law will host a one-day Global Seminar Series in Hong Kong on Wednesday, Oct. 31.  

What:
Global Seminar Series: Hong Kong
Sponsored by the ABA Section of Antitrust Law

When: 
Wednesday, Oct. 31, 2:45 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.

Where:
The Kowloon Shangri-La
64 Mody Road
Tsim Sha Tsui East
Kowloon Hong Kong
Rose & Peony Rooms (LL2)

The Global Seminar Series will focus on antitrust trials and will include key remarks by Andre M. Geverola, the U.S. Department of Justice’s new director of criminal litigation.

His presentation will be followed by a panel discussion titled, “Trying Cartel Cases: Effective Trial Strategies for Proving and Defending the Case.” This panel of antitrust trial lawyers will share lessons and practice tips for proving and defending antitrust violations at trial. Developing strong themes to anchor the fact-finder to your side, focusing witness testimony (percipient and expert witnesses) on the right facts and concepts to tell a more compelling and persuasive story and choosing the right documents from a mountain of pretrial evidence are all key factors for success at trial. These lawyers will explain how they do it, and win.

This event is open to members of the press at no charge. For media credentialing, please contact Robert Robinson at Robert.Robinson@americanbar.org.
