Epiq invites you to the next Webinar in our Antitrust & Competition Series:

2021 Antitrust Trends in the United States

Broadcast on 14 April 2021 Request Recording Your Desk!

About This Event

This webinar took place on 14 April 2021. It explored two intersecting trends:

  1. The exploding growth of merger activity in the U.S. market, and
  2. The recent regulatory "harbingers" indicating the quick onset of increased oversight and more robust enforcement of antitrust laws with an accompanying uptick in related litigated matters.

Epiq has assembled a panel of experienced legal professionals with significant government and private experience to dive into these 2021 trends.  In addition, the panelists will discuss how artificial intelligence and newly developed technology tools can be deployed to promote greater accuracy, efficiency and defensibility.
