More than 30 years since the enactment of the Foreign Trade Antitrust Improvements Act (FTAIA), it continues to be characterized by confusion about the application of U.S. antitrust laws to international trade, which is the exact opposite of what was intended when the Act was passed.

The June 15, 2015, U.S. Supreme Court decision not to hear appeals in two major federal circuit decisions puts off, yet again, needed clarification of the FTAIA.

In this web conference, Foley Partners Melinda F. Levitt and Howard W. Fogt will outline current FTAIA issues and provide guidance on the present, confused state of the law on international trade and antitrust. Is the ball in Congress’ court?

Topics covered will be:

  • The substantive or jurisdictional underpinnings of the FTAIA.
  • What constitutes “import commerce”?
  • How are “domestic effects” to be measured?
  • When does challenged conduct “give rise to a claim” under the FTAIA?

There is no cost to participate in this program, but advance registration is required. Should you have additional questions, please contact David Puleo at dpuleo@foley.com.
