The Antitrust Lawyer Article Introduction

The Antitrust Lawyer Article Introduction

I am pleased to introduce you to the first addition of the Antitrust Lawyer.  We have been lucky enough to receive four scholarly articles covering important and topical areas of antitrust law. 

Yoshiya Usami and Takashi Tsuboi of Lane Powell PC provide an excellent overview of amendments to the Japanese Antimonopoly Act and the implications for US criminal and civil antitrust enforcement.  Kristen Marttila of Lockridge Grindal Nauen offers an instructive overview of emerging guidance on ACPERA, the civil companion to the DOJ leniency policy.  Mr. Roni Elias authored a scholarly review of the implications of the landmark Dukes v. Wal-Mart and Comcast v. Behrend class certification decisions.  Lastly but not least, Bryan Bleichner and Jennell Shannon of Chestnut Cambronne provide a thorough update on importantantitrust cases, with topics including the appealability of dismissed claims, class certification in “pay for delay” cases,  pleading standards for “product hopping” cases, and whether industry groups can be held liable for allegedly anticompetitive conduct.

I hope you will join me in congratulating these authors for being a part of the first Antitrust Lawyer edition.

I also sincerely hope you will consider being a part of the next Antitrust Lawyer publication.  With hundreds of members in the section, publishing in the newsletter is a great way to get your name and ideas to antitrust and trade regulation practitioners across the country.  Our section is scheduled to publish three times a year.  Please contact me at jrissman@gustafsongluek.com if you are interested or have questions.
