Analysis Group Principal Samuel Weglein is co-chairing this annual GCR event with Thomas Mueller, a partner at WilmerHale. The half-day program features a keynote address by Victor Domen, former senior antitrust counsel for the Tennessee Attorney General’s Office and chair of the Multistate Antitrust Task Force for the National Association of Attorneys General. In addition, the program will feature three panel discussion on timely topics:
- A Forex Case Study: The panel will explore how enforcers can explain the complex world of financial benchmarks to juries, and strategies for defense counsel when prosecutors have cooperating witnesses on their side.
- No-Poach Agreements and Other Labor Market Concerns: The panel will discuss why the focus on so-called “no-poach” or “no-hire” agreements has been increasing, and what the implications are for employers, their counsel, and regulators.
- The State of Leniency: The state of leniency seems in decline in much of the world, yet the news isn't bad everywhere. The panel will discuss what older leniency regimes might have to learn from newer ones, and the prospects for private litigation.
Samuel Weglein will also serve as a panelist on the no-poach agreements panel.
