McDonald Hopkins hosts discussion on how antitrust laws affect businesses of all sizes

CLEVELAND – McDonald Hopkins LLC held a Business Hour webcast on Nov. 2 regarding how antitrust laws do not only apply to large corporations, such as Google, Apple and Microsoft, but to businesses of all sizes.

The event, Everyday Antitrust Issues: Protecting Your Business From Criminal and Civil Liability, featured Richard Blake as moderator with Jennifer Armstrong, Christopher Dean and Paul Flannery, a former assistant United States attorney for the Northern District of Ohio, white collar crime unit, as panelists. 

During the discussion, Blake, Armstrong, Dean and Flannery provided important information and elaborated on a wide array of antitrust topics such as:
  • Antitrust basics, and some of the most common and easily avoidable ways that even the smallest companies can run afoul of the competition laws
  • Antitrust implications of participation in trade associations, and tips for conducting association business in compliance with the law
  • New Department of Justice/Federal Trade Commission antitrust guidance for human resource professionals, including potential criminal risks for the unwary in hiring and compensation decisions
