When multinational corporations merge, antitrust counsel must navigate a wide range of competition laws across the globe.

The panel will debate whether and to what extent antitrust law needs to evolve and innovate to stay relevant and ensure competitive markets in today s global, interconnected, and digitized world. The speakers will address (1) the implications of the rise of Big Data (which calls into question how traditional methods of defining markets work with products and services provided at no cost); (2) whether the formation of data ecosystems could see a rebirth of the essential facilities doctrine and other theories of market foreclosure; and (3) the perennial question whether pricing transparency can facilitate tacit collusion (as recent enforcement actions concerning pricing algorithms suggest). The panel will also address whether, in view of the digital world s transformation of traditional media (providing new means of distributing the printed word, sounds and images), market definition should account for the erosion of traditional media companies profits at an unprecedented rate in the 21 st century.

Sigmond, Cohen Seglias Pallas Greenhall & Furman PC, New York, NY THURSDAY, AUGUST 10 (BakerHostetler LLP) 9:30 10:00 a.m. Registration and Continental Breakfast 10:00 11:30 a.m. Introduction to Construction Law The practice of construction law requires more than a thorough understanding of advanced contract law. It also requires a special appreciation of the myriad ways in which courts and legislatures in the name of public policy limit the freedom of parties to fashion their own contract rights. This program begins with a survey of the discrete practice areas encompassed within the field of construction law, then studies the judicial and legislative limitations that make construction law unique, and closes with an overview of damages and remedies and explains why all these details distinguish construction law from other areas of practice. Steven B. Lesser, Becker & Poliakoff LLP, Fort Lauderdale, FL SPEAKER: Stephen A. Hess, Sherman & Howard LLC, Denver, CO 12

13 12:00 1:30 p.m. Lunch Program: Lost Labor Productivity: Causation and Damages (not CLE) Disruption and delay are constant themes in construction, and contractors and subcontractors rely frequently on lost labor productivity claims to recoup the damage caused by schedule disruptions. Numerous methods for calculating damages for such claims are recognized, with everything from measured-mile analysis to total-cost claims being employed. In any such case, proving the increased costs incurred on a project is the easy part; proving the tie between alleged disruptions and the increased cost is more difficult. This lunch program will focus on this conundrum of establishing causation while also discussing the cost issues. Gina M. Mavica, BakerHostetler LLP, New York, NY Patrick McGeehan and William Berkowitz, FTI Consulting, New York, NY; Peter Vosbikian, FTI Consulting, Philadelphia, PA 2:00 3:30 p.m. Advocacy in Mediation With the advent of ADR, virtually every construction dispute is mediated before it goes to trial. While related, the skills necessary to be an effective advocate for your client at the mediation of a construction case differ from those used in a courtroom. This program will provide a practicum with two nationally recognized construction attorneys who will discuss how to be an effective advocate in a mediation setting. Topics will include selecting a mediator; tailoring the mediation process to address the needs of your case; preparing your clients for mediation; drafting an effective mediation statement; the opening or plenary session; and private sessions with the mediator. Nicholas Holmes, Devine, Millimet & Branch PA, Manchester, NH SPEAKER: Patrick Coughlan, Conflict Solutions, Portland, ME FRIDAY, AUGUST 11 9:00 10:30 a.m. (Arnold & Porter Kaye Scholer LLP, 250 West 55th Street at Eighth Avenue) Winning the Case Without Breaking the Bank Leveraging Recent Rule Changes to Make Litigation (and Arbitration) Affordable Recent changes in the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure including Rule 16, the AAA Construction Industry Rules, along with certain rules in other state court and arbitration forums are aimed at controlling the cost of trying a case. This session examines the key drivers of the high costs and the reality that cost has sometimes turned litigation into the sport of kings. The panel will examine how parties can use the new rules to their benefit to make expenses meet budgets and have their issues actually resolved on the merits rather than having transactional costs dictate unsatisfactory settlements. The program will be followed by a presentation on, and tour of, the Lincoln Center re-development. 13

Most large companies have surrendered their protections against hostile takeovers and activists. Supposed best practices (like majority voting, proxy access, separation of CEO and chair positions, and directortenure limits) have been codified in rules or voluntarily adopted by most S&P 500 companies, often under pressure from ISS and institutional investor groups. Activist groups continue to advocate for more best practices including those relating to broader social and political objectives (e.g., sustainability, diversity, environmental stewardship and payequality). While the U.S. had led the field in this sort of activism (in part because other jurisdictions were already more shareholder-centric), shareholder advocacy groups are extending their reach globally to markets beyond the U.S. At the same time, engagement with large shareholders is increasing dramatically, in terms of frequency and depth. Some large institutional investors, recognizing the negative impact of short-termism to long-term value creation, are seeking to establish a new paradigm for corporate governance that prioritizes sustainable value, integrates long-term corporate strategy with substantive corporate governance and requires transparency as to director involvement. This panel will explore these new relationships (between companies and their larger shareholders) and tensions (often between different types of shareholders) and how they play out. Trevor S.

Since taking office, he has called on federal 16

17 agencies to reduce regulations to facilitate commercial activity. Mary Jo White s resignation cleared the way for President Trump to nominate Jay Clayton as Chairman of the SEC. This panel of experienced practitioners will review the SEC s top priorities for the next year.

Changes in technology and consumer behavior have thrown open the door to new payments providers. While some of these providers continue to rely on the core banking system, others are focused on building a new infrastructure. Globally, policymakers are taking different approaches to address familiar payments issues, including efficiency, reliability, operational and financial risk, consumer protection, and the prevention of fraud, money laundering and terrorist financing. This program will provide an overview of the legal landscape for payments in the U.S. and key international jurisdictions. Panelists will provide a global perspective on issues facing policymakers with respect to emerging payments technology.

Among these are how to structure corporate relationships that encourage innovation but also ensure compliance with law. Answers depend on technology and services, the nature of the enterprise, and the form of investment. While the OCC s consideration of a 21

22 special purpose national bank charter focused attention on nationwide licensing, the pros and cons of structural forms must be considered more broadly in the context of the regulatory environment for fintech firms. Panelists will discuss the process involved in a fintech start-up or investment, the regulatory environment facing different fintech services and the implications of various legal structures. Topics will include challenges facing start-ups and their investors as well as challenges and surprising benefits of fintech regulation. Kevin L.

Rapid advances in blockchain 22 technology are decentralizing the financial landscape, enabling individuals and companies to disintermediate and transact directly with each other. Yet, based on certain measures (e.g., deposits, assets under management), power seems to be consolidating in a small group of established firms. Blockchain industry start-ups will square off against more traditional financial industry players to share experiences and predictions of what lies on the horizon. The panel will provide a brief overview of blockchain technology, distributed ledgers, and the process for transferring ownership without the use of a centralized clearing mechanism or administrator. Panelists will offer contrasting views on blockchain s role in financial decentralization and will discuss the legal considerations that have a significant bearing on the potential reach and growth of blockchain.

Conversely, most states have adopted a uniform version of a model law that provides a mechanism for enforcement of incoming money judgments rendered in other countries. The United States has not yet ratified the Hague Convention of 30 June 2005 on Choice of Court Agreements, but negotiations are already well under way at The Hague regarding a broader convention that would provide for the enforcement of tort and other judgments. The current draft as of February 24, 2017 of The Hague Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Judgments will be considered in November 2017, with the hope of a final diplomatic session in late This program will provide an update on developments at The Hague and prospects for U.S. ratification of both the Convention on Choice of Court Agreements and the newer judgments convention and their relevance to American practitioners, with input from international litigators, an academic, the U.S. State Department, and a member of the delegation negotiating the treaty.

In 1944, the United States reinstituted the draft for Nisei, first-generation Japanese- Americans, including those imprisoned in the camps. Many Japanese- Americans believed that the detainees should fight for the United States, as they felt their willingness to risk their lives for their country would eliminate any doubt as to their loyalty and hasten the return of their rights as citizens, but at the Heart Mountain camp in Wyoming, certain draftees refused induction. One resister wrote: I could not believe the government could actually put us in camp, strip us of everything, and then order us into the military as if nothing had happened. Sixty-three resisters were tried for draft evasion in a mass trial. Eight leaders of the resistance effort were tried for conspiracy to counsel draft evasion. This program will tell the story of the draft resisters through narration, reenactments of court proceedings, and historic documents and photographs.

The program will review the findings of an extensive empirical study by the American Bar Foundation (ABF) of deliberations of actual trial juries in real civil cases. With permission from state courts and litigants in civil cases in Arizona, ABF researchers videorecorded the deliberations of real juries deciding live civil cases and compiled extensive data on how juries actually approach deciding a case. ABF Research Professor Shari Diamond will present the findings, and a panel consisting of a highly experienced trial lawyer, a jury consultant and a judge will discuss how those findings confirm or contradict what trial lawyers know about how juries work in general and whether the results from Arizona are thought to be representative of deliberations in other parts of the country.
