The attorneys of Arnall Golden Gregory’s Food and Drug Practice and Litigation Practice Group invite you to attend a complimentary webinar “Life Science: Hot Topics in Antitrust.”

The Federal Trade Commission and the Department of Justice have become more aggressive in enforcing antitrust laws that could affect the life science industry. This was illustrated by the FTC v. Actavis case, recently decided by the United States Supreme Court, where the Court held that the rule of reason should be utilized to examine ‘pay for delay’ type settlements. 

Register now to hear AGG partner Jeffrey S. Jacobovitz, a former FTC lawyer, discuss these recent developments and address:

  • The latest on pay for delay cases (branded settlements with generics);  
  • “Patent troll” prosecution by the FTC; and 
  • “Product hopping” litigation.

The 1-hour webinar will offer tips to in-house counsel and companies and how to best address these issues, particularly when you face litigation on these subjects. A live Q&A session will follow after the presentation.

This event has been approved for 1 hour of State Bar of Georgia CLE credit. Please direct any questions regarding this webinar to Tracey Chapman, 404.870.5684.
