Speaking Engagement
The Federalist Society’s Corporations, Securities, & Antitrust Practice Group’s ‘Antitrust Enforcement as Regulation?’
Washington, D.C.

Former Chairman of the Federal Trade Commission and current Husch Blackwell Senior Advisor Jim Miller and other panelists consider the rise of antitrust cases in 2011, whether the trend indicates antitrust enforcement is becoming a regulatory instrument and what regulation methods are most effective. Miller explores whether antitrust enforcement may have a detrimental influence on the progress of an industry, and if enforcements made against technology companies might be especially damaging due to the constantly evolving nature of the business.
