Episode Notes

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.

Subrata Bhattacharjee is a partner at Borden Ladner Gervais’ Toronto office and national vice chair of the Competition and Foreign Investment Review Group.

As co-chair of O’Melveny & Myers’s Antitrust and Competition Practice, Ian Simmons has been lead counsel in more than 30 multi-district litigation (MDL) antitrust proceedings and has achieved precedent-setting results.

Hill Wellford is a partner at Vinson & Elkins where he advises clients on antitrust matters, especially where the U.S. Department of Justice, Federal Trade Commission, and foreign agency enforcement intersects with energy, telecom, media, technology, standard-setting, pharmaceuticals, or patents.
