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

2021 Antitrust Trends in North America

About This Event

This webinar will explore two intersecting trends:

  1. The exploding growth of merger activity in the North American 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.

Virtual seating is limited to the first 300 registrants.
