MORE INFORMATION

On June 1-2, government enforcers, corporate counsel and leading antitrust practitioners from throughout the Americas will convene in Rio for the sixth Antitrust in the Americas Conference sponsored by the ABA Antitrust Law Section.  As in prior years, the faculty representation will be from the Mexican Bar Association (Barra Mexicana, Colegio de Abogados, A.C.), the Brazilian Association for Studies on Competition, (IBRAC), Consumer Affairs and International Trade (Instituto Brasileiro de Estudos de Concorrência, Consumo e Comércio Internacional) and Buenos Aires Bar Association.

Competition law enforcement activity continues to expand in the region, and in particular Latin America where mergers, cartels, distribution agreements, and dominance face close scrutiny.

The Conference will include interactive discussions with experts from throughout the region on cutting edge topics, including:

  • Insights on developments in international cartel enforcement, recognizing the growth of criminal enforcement and leniency programs throughout the region;
  •  Distinguishing pro-competitive collaboration with competitors from anticompetitive collusion;
  • Issues arising in distribution agreements, such as resale price agreements, distribution, MFN agreements, and the like;
  • Antitrust issues in telecommunications; and
  • Competition issues from the viewpoint of the judiciary, including the advantages and disadvantages of different systems of judicial review

Special focus will be given to the emerging antitrust issues that General Counsel and their advisors should anticipate in the dynamic regulatory environment their companies operate in throughout the region. A round table panel of enforcement leaders from the Americas will answer questions on their enforcement priorities, challenges, and collaborative efforts with their counterparts across borders.

The conference provides a unique opportunity for participants to hear from government officials who are playing leading roles in competition law enforcement, as well as corporate counsel from throughout the region and leading members of the antitrust bar who are handling antitrust matters making headlines in the region.
