Conditional Pricing Practices: Economic Analysis and Legal Policy Implications

Monday, June 23, 2014
01:00 AM ET

The Federal Trade Commission and the Antitrust Division of the Department of Justice will hold a one-day public workshop on June 23, 2014 to explore the economics and legal policy implications of certain pricing practices, such as loyalty and bundled pricing. The workshop, which will consist of presentations and roundtable discussions, will focus on practices in which prices are explicitly or effectively contingent on commitments to purchase or sell a specified share or volume of a single product or a mix of multiple products. Workshop participants will consider theoretical and empirical developments in the economic understanding of these practices, discuss developments in the relevant case law, and assess the implications for the proper treatment of these practices under the antitrust laws.

Please join Morgan Lewis partner Willard K. Tom for a hour  discussion entitled “The Law of Conditional Pricing Practices.”
