The unexpected shift in court proceedings brought by COVID-19 also added to the existing complexity of this lawsuit, emphasizing the need to be more non-complacent and always be on guard of changes.
To successfully address the arising challenges and risks, businesses and their legal counsel should be well-informed of the best compliance strategies and appropriate standards on each class certification analysis, especially when applied to antitrust injuries and damages.
Join antitrust experts Rainer Schwabe (Cornerstone Research) and David Kaplan (Berkeley Research Group, LLC) as they bring the audience to a road beyond the basics of antitrust class certification. Speakers will delve into an in-depth analysis of the most notable antitrust cases and court decisions.
