Baker Botts is a proud sponsor of the GCR Interactive: Women in Antitrust Conference, which will be held virtually on November 17-18, 2020. Baker Botts Partner Catriona Hatton will be speaking on the "Focus on Online Platforms - Do We Need New Tools?" panel at 9:00 a.m. ET on Wednesday, November 18. The panel will consider potential regulation of the digital economy and the role of ‘gatekeeper’ platforms as well as proposed new EU competition tools and market investigation powers to intervene in markets that are not functioning competitively.
The session will also look at the FTC’s past reviews of Google and of Facebook’s acquisitions – and assess if the US election is likely to encourage or discourage increased enforcement against Big Tech.
