Program Number: 2655 Presenter: Robert S.K. Bell, Esq, Jacob A. Kramer, Esq

Both the EU and US antitrust regulators are struggling to face the challenges of data. Robert Bell and Jacob Kramer tell you what you need to know to help you guide your business in data collection and utilization. The European side of the talk will focus on the regulatory response to the growth of dominant tech players and how regulators and law makers now hope to tackle the issues. Is competition law the best weapon to regulate data and consumer protection issues? Is it too late and are these companies too dominant, or is there a way forward? Alternatively, are the regulators right to tackle these issues, or is politics being entwined with law?

Program Number: 2652 Presenter: Carolyn Krampitz, Esq., David A. Zetoony, Esq.

Multinational companies and United States-based service providers have long struggled with transferring information from the European Union to the United States, and balancing legal compliance with practical need.

Program Number: 2645 Presenter: Ann Kotlarski, Esq.

Litigating employment claims can be risky, time consuming and expensive for the parties.
