FTC's Hearings on Competition and Consumer Protection in the 21st Century – Sixth Session

Speaking Engagement | November.06.2018 - November.08.2018

Antitrust partner Alex Okuliar participated in the Federal Trade Commission's (FTC) sixth session in its Hearings initiative on Competition and Consumer Protection in the 21st Century. Hosted in partnership with the American University Washington College of Law, the session focused on key issues relating to data, privacy and competition that are at the forefront of antitrust and competition policy.

Alex spoke on an "Antitrust Analysis of Data" panel on November 7, where he presented analytical frameworks for analyzing data that he’s developed principally in two peer-reviewed papers. The first paper, co-authored with former FTC Commissioner Ohlhausen, focuses on data, competition and privacy issues. The second paper, co-authored with Greg Sivinski of Microsoft and Lars Kjølbye of Latham & Watkins, presents an analysis for assessing the competitive implications of data in mergers and in connection with certain types of competitor conduct.
