Joseph Farrell speaks on vertical mergers at Concurrences Global Antitrust Economics conference

November 16, 2021
1:00 pm EST

At the sixth Global Antitrust Economics Conference, Partner Joseph Farrell speaks on the panel “Acquisitions in the High-Tech Space: Market Power and Innovation Issues” on November 16. The virtual session examines the idea of reversing the burden of proof in merger reviews—that is, having the acquirer prove that the effect of the proposed acquisition is pro-competitive. Would this avoid many pre-emptive acquisitions and thus spur innovation and competition, or would it have a chilling effect on innovation, particularly by startups? Luis Cabral from NYU Stern School of Business moderates the session with Dr. Farrell and co-panelists Patricia Brink from the Department of Justice and Koren Wong-Ervin from Axinn.
