Kirby Behre will be speaking at The Metropolitan Corporate Counsel's Cross-Border Antitrust Enforcement Live Teleconference and Webinar. This program will take place on Tuesday, September 23, 2008 from 1:00PM - 3:00PM Eastern time.

Overview:Antirust enforcement authorities around the world are increasingly coordinating their efforts with other countries. As a result, corporations who are investigated in the United States for anti-competitive behavior face numerous other investigations in the European Union, Canada, and other countries. These corporations also face class action lawsuits in the United States.

This event will provide a systematic overview of cutting-edge issues associated with these investigations, including:- Current enforcement tools, including search warrants and arrests of executives- The Department of Justice's approach to encouraging corporations to cooperate with the  government's investigation- The ripple effect that an agreement to plead guilty in one country has in other jurisdictions- The different ways companies can respond to government investigations- The impact that cooperation with a government investigation can have on civil suits- Steps that can be taken to minimize exposure- Privacy issues and evidentiary issues associated with moving documents out of the EU and into the  U.S.

Produced by the Knowledge Congress, key experts and government regulators are expected to share their views in this two-hour teleconference and webinar.
