BCLP Lawyer in ‘Law360’ on the Major Antitrust Conduct Cases of 2021
BCLP Partner Philip Bartz was quoted Dec. 20 by Law360 concerning US conduct cases from government enforcers and private plaintiffs that shook up the antitrust world in 2021. Facebook scored important wins in 2021 against the parallel enforcement actions against it from the Federal Trade Commission and state attorneys general, which are centered around its past acquisitions of WhatsApp and Instagram. Phil noted in Facebook's legal momentum the need, and challenges, in establishing that tech giant power translates to actual harms. "That's where these cases need to go," he said. "That's where they're struggling. To come up with 'what's the bad conduct.'"
