On Thursday, December 3, 2009, Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney hosted "Recent Developments in Antitrust — A CLE and Networking Event for In-House Legal Counsel." The event took place at the firm's Philadelphia office, located at Two Liberty Place, 50 S. 16th Street, Suite 3200, from noon until 5 p.m.

Recent decisions in antitrust law and enforcement show us the path to likely developments. Buchanan attorneys James Becker, Wendy Newton and Howard Scher examined and analyzed those trends, shared updates and provided an overview of developments we can anticipate.

Topics covered included:

  • Pleading standards in direct purchaser and indirect purchaser cases in the wake of Twombly
  • Developments in merger policy and practice before the agencies under the new administration as well as day-to-day counseling points
  • Class certification standards and practice in the wake of the Hydrogen Peroxide decision
  • Criminal antitrust enforcement trends, including the future of ACPERA
