Event Description

We are delighted to invite our international and state enforcement colleagues to an Enforcers Summit, which will take place on Monday, April 4, 2022, from 9am to 5pm ET. Co-hosted by Assistant Attorney General Jonathan Kanter and FTC Chair Lina M. Khan, as well as senior staff from both agencies, the Enforcers Summit will cover two themes: 1) merger reform to meet the challenges and realities of the modern economy, and 2) lessons for interagency collaboration. These discussions will inform our agencies’ joint public inquiry aimed at modernizing merger guidelines to better detect and prevent anticompetitive deals.

The Enforcers Summit will include publicly streamed plenary sessions as well as closed-door, in-person breakout discussions, designed to share feedback, evidence, and ideas. Given capacity constraints, we invite Attorneys General and agency heads who will be in Washington on April 4 to join in-person, and will allocate additional places to senior officials as space permits. In-person participation only for those international and state enforcement officials who are pre-registered. All others are welcome to view the plenary sessions virtually.
