Join lawyers from Steptoe's Antitrust, Energy, Transportation, and Telecom practices as they review the most important theories of harm used in the review of vertical transactions, discuss the kind of vertical conduct that can trigger regulatory action, and explain how courts are analyzing the circumstances in which federal or state regulation may preclude antitrust claims.
