September 7-8, 2011
New York, New York

On September 7 and 8, Ms. Quinn participated in Fordham University School of Law’s Fordham Competition Law Institute’s 38th Annual Conference on International Antitrust Law & Policy, held at the school’s Lincoln Center campus. Ms. Quinn presided over a discussion of two topics: behavioral remedies in merger control – which contrasted EU and U.S. approaches, including the trends reflected in the DOJ’s new merger remedy guidelines; and minority shareholding and creeping acquisitions – which focused on differences between the U.S. and EC legal frameworks for challenging such acquisitions, and the differences in the level and degree of analytical approach taken by U.S. and EC competition agencies to partial versus full mergers.

Other topics addressed at the conference included civil non-merger enforcement, european competition enforcement, antitrust fact finding in judicial and administrative proceedings, policy objectives in antitrust merger control, and Chinese antitrust law and policy.
