Public Interest Considerations and Competition Law

Public Interest Considerations and Competition Law

Speaking Engagement

In antitrust and competition law, the importance of public interest considerations ranging from national security to jobs has grown in recent years. Some jurisdictions expressly require foreign investment scrutiny under various national interest standards—sometimes even requiring “net benefit” to the host country. Others have broadly interpreted existing national security standards or are considering new rules to expand the scope of foreign investment reviews. In yet other jurisdictions, public interest considerations can factor into general antitrust reviews, or into sector-specific reviews, such as in the banking and finance, media, telecommunications or transportation industries.

WilmerHale Partner Hartmut Schneider will chair this conference, which is part of the Global Seminar Series of the ABA Antitrust Section.
