The Unilateral Conduct Committee focuses on various types of dominant firm conduct and keeps the Section membership informed on recent developments in this ever-changing and complex area of antitrust law. We encourage active member participation through numerous opportunities ranging from drafting case digests and analytical thought-pieces to providing CLE programs where leading economists and practitioners discuss interesting and topical ideas. We also encourage members to share their ideas during periodic Committee meetings (in-person for those who can make it or by telephone), which also provide terrific networking opportunities. As a newly formed committee, we look forward to meeting you and welcome you to join us.
The purpose of the NYSBA Antitrust Section Unilateral Conduct Committee is to collaborate with other members of the Bar in exploring recent developments and new applications of the antitrust laws to various forms of horizontal restraints. That exploration occurs in the context of regular bi-monthly meetings where members discuss current cases, panels that form a part of the Section’s annual meeting, standalone CLE programs, and periodically publishing a newsletter to the Section.
The Unilateral Conduct Committee offers members the chance to become active in the New York antitrust bar through program planning and speaking and writing opportunities. More importantly, the Committee provides a platform for its members develop relationships with fellow antitrust practitioners working in all sectors, including defense, plaintiffs, government, and in-house attorneys. We encourage those who are interested in antitrust law to reach out to the Committee leadership to learn more about joining our group.
