DOJ's Varney To Address Antitrust Community on June 24

Jun 06 2010

For 11 years, the AAI's Annual National Conference has been a showcase for the presentation of new thinking about antitrust and competition policy issues.

Attorney General Janet Reno made her only antitrust speech here. EC Director General of Competition Philip Lowe made his first speech in that position, even before formally assuming office. Robert Pitofsky delivered an important commentary on the threat of far-reaching intellectual property positions on antitrust. Tim Muris gave his first talk as FTC Chairman.

On June 24, Assistant Attorney General Christine Varney will share her views on the rise of a more flexible approach in antitrust law and policy, and the absence of a continuing need for certain traditional antitrust exemptions in the contemporary era. Varney will deliver the Keynote Address at 9 a.m. in the Ballroom of the National Press Club in Washington DC.
