Both the private and public sectors rely on competitive bidding processes to acquire goods and services. But for the process to be fair, bidders must set prices honestly and independently from each other. When they collude, the customer loses. Vieux and his colleagues will discuss how federal and state antitrust enforcers and economists track down potential bid-riggers using antitrust and consumer protection laws.
A former senior attorney for the Federal Trade Commission, Vieux brings a wealth of knowledge and experience in developing and running complex investigations with an eye toward litigation. He not only defends and represents clients, he helps them challenge unfair and anti-competitive actions by rivals.
The webinar is sponsored by the American Bar Association Section of Antitrust Law and the Government and Public Sector Lawyers Division, and may be eligible for CLE credit.
