American Bar Association: Global Private Litigation Conference

Amsterdam, Netherlands
May 08, 2017

Labaton Sucharow partner Jay L. Himes will speak on a panel at the American Bar Association's inaugural Global Private LItigation Conference, which will provide insights into the continuing path of multi-jurisdictional and collective antitrust redress, and presented by a world-class line-up of private plaintiff and defense litigators, as well as government enforcers, economists, corporate counsel, and academics from around the globe.

Featured programs will address topics including, among others, the private enforcement regimes in the "battleground" jurisdictions and the impact of Brexit; claims aggregation, claims assignment, and litigation funding techniques; pass-on and allocation; and structuring settlements in pursuit of "global peace."

Himes' panel discussion, titled, "Public and Private Interface," will address potentially game-changing questions, including: What is the potential for discovery of antitrust matters filed under the EU directive, what stay issues may arise, and what collateral estoppel effect arises from commission findings?

Moderated by Fiona A. Schaeffer, from Milbank, Tweed, Hadley & McClopy LLP in New York, other panelists include:

  • Albrecht Bach, Oppenländer Rechtsanwälte, Stuttgart
  • Belinda Holloway, Scott + Scott LLP, London
  • Lisa M. Phelan, Chief, National Criminal Enforcement Section, Antitrust Division, U.S. Department of Justice, Washington, D.C.
