Collaborations with competitors can create efficiency and spur innovation. Antitrust laws are intended to promote procompetitive collaborations, but carry the stick of large fines, bet-the-company litigation and even jail time when collaboration crosses antitrust's line to collusion. Current antitrust scrutiny on consortia and collaborations in the healthcare, energy, food, fashion, retail and government contracting space make informal collaborations, information exchanges, and communications with direct competitors riskier than ever. This webinar will explore competition laws' lines between permissible collaboration and illegal collusion using cutting-edge hypotheticals with U.S. and European antitrust and competition practitioners.
