Spot the Antitrust Issue: An Interactive Guide to Identifying and Mitigating Antitrust Risk in a Changing Healthcare Landscape - On Demand Recording

Recorded On: 08/14/2018

Time: 90 minutes
Session Format: On Demand Recording

As consolidation, vertical re-alignment, and disruption continue to transform the health care marketplace, the competitive landscape is changing.  Providers, health plans, life sciences companies, and other industry participants are evolving their business practices to meet these changes, creating new competitive opportunities and the potential for new competitive risks. It’s more important than ever for trusted legal advisers to spot antitrust issues early to help clients navigate and mitigate potential antitrust risks. This program is geared to general counsel, in-house counsel, and general health care practitioners. It is intended to help practitioners "issue spot" the antitrust issues that may arise in a fast-paced and dynamic healthcare context. 

This program is designed to facilitate issue-spotting in the context of common business activities, including mergers, acquisitions, joint ventures, and other collaborations; identify potential antitrust problems and tools for avoiding such problems in the context of trade associations and other activities that involve competitors; and examine potential pitfalls and guidance for "dominant firms" in connection with sales and marketing activities.

Level of Difficulty: Intermediate

Intermediate-level programs generally offer focused discussions regarding common legal issues pertaining to the program topic. Intermediate programs include legal updates and changes in the law. Speakers will assume the audience has a working knowledge of this specialty of health law, and there will be limited review of the fundamentals. This program is designed to provide a targeted, comprehensive analysis of the subject matter for those practicing law in this specialty for three to seven years and/or those whose practice is periodically focused in the covered subject area.
