The DC Chapter of Women in eDiscovery is excited to present a panel of experienced antitrust professionals providing their own thoughts and opinions on Antitrust litigation reform & changes in 2021 and beyond. When the pandemic hit the United States, many in the legal and financial industries that work on Mergers and Acquisitions braced themselves for a bumpy ride. What emerged during the pandemic was a flurry of activity with opportunistic buyers (like private equity firms) and sellers assessing COVID-19’s impact and deciding to minimize risks. Senator Amy Klobuchar, the new Chair of the Senate Antitrust Subcommittee, introduced the Competition and Antitrust Law Enforcement Reform Act to legislation. It is anticipated that if this bill becomes law, there will be a major impact on antitrust litigation. What discovery challenges should we anticipate in wake of reform measures?
