After 60 years, the Spring Meeting continues to be one of the most prominent conferences for competition and consumer protection lawyers and economists around the world. It is the largest gathering of antitrust and consumer protection lawyers and economists anywhere, attracting some 2,500 attendees from over forty countries. Antitrust law frequently is hailed as an essential engine of economic welfare, but the global economy has faced serious challenges in recent years, leading many to rethink the effectiveness of the tools in our economic and legal toolbox.
At this year’s Spring Meeting, you will be taking a hard look at the effectiveness of our antitrust and consumer protection laws, examining how they fit within the broader context, and asking whether there is more that they can contribute to economic growth. At the same time, the Spring Meeting will offer a cornucopia of the latest updates, in-depth analysis, and live demonstrations to make you a better lawyer or economist. There are three different Fundamentals programs offered this year: Antitrust Fundamentals, Consumer Protection Fundamentals, and Antitrust Economics Fundamentals. There also is a wide variety of more advanced programs, covering everything from the nuances of merger review, to the realities of multi-jurisdictional litigation and the complexities of settling false advertising cases.
Hogan Lovells partners Robby Robertson and Logan Breed will be featured speakers at this conference. Robby will speak on "Consummated Merger Challenges - The Past Is Never Dead" on Thursday, March 29 from 8:15 a.m. - 9:45 a.m. Logan will talk on "Surviving The E-Discovery Trenches" on Thursday, March 29 from 8:15 a.m. - 9:45 a.m.
