U.S. antitrust lawyers benefit immensely from keeping up with antitrust regulation changes in other countries. In this interview from the ABA Section of Antitrust Law Spring Meeting 2018, host Jana Seidl talks to Subrata Bhattacharjee, Ian Simmons, and Hill Wellford about how Asian countries and other jurisdictions apply antitrust laws, and the impact this has on U.S. antitrust lawyers. They discuss enforcement of antitrust laws, implementation vs. innovation, and the Qualcomm case. They also emphasize the importance for dedicated antitrust lawyers to physically visit foreign countries in order to learn their laws, industries, and economies.
