    Webinar: U.S. Antitrust Law v. EU Competition Law in an Increasingly Digital Economy

    Online: web based program, .

    Sponsored by Pepper Hamilton LLP, and with speakers from Pepper Hamilton LLP and Noerr LLP, both members of EACCNY. As globalization and digitization pose new antitrust challenges around the world for companies with cross-border relationship, authorities and lawmakers are forced to focus on and quickly catch up with new conceptual work, legislative initiatives and increased enforcement activities. Although E.U. Competition and U.S. antitrust laws cover most of the same subjects, rely on similar economic principles and have followed broadly similar conceptual approaches, a divergence appears to be in process. Differences are surfacing regarding treatment of algorithm-driven cartels, big data and resale restrictions. An international panel of antitrust law experts will address the myriad questions of how these new considerations affect businesses, explore the apparent enthusiasm of particular European enforcers to intervene or adjust competition law to keep pace with the fast-evolving digital economy.

    The ever-expanding range of relationships between fintechs and banks has been on the radar of U.S. federal banking regulators for some time.

Despite this attention, the federal banking laws and regulations consistently lag behind what is needed to allow these relationships to flourish and grow to their full potential.
