Hudson Institute will host a discussion with Federal Trade Commissioner Noah Phillips on federal antitrust laws and corporate restructuring. The conversation will be moderated by Hudson Senior Fellow and Director, Harold Furchtgott-Roth.

Originally enacted to limit anticompetitive conduct, federal antitrust laws have historically remedied violations through fines, penalties, behavioral remedies, and corporate restructuring. While restructuring is not uncommon when two entities are joining together,it is far less commonly used to break up an already existing company. The most notable example of that is the breakup of the Bell System in 1982. Recently, there has been renewed discussion of corporate restructuring as a remedy for monopolist activities. Commissioner Noah Phillips will discuss the scenarios that mandate corporate restructuring and the FTC’s role in the process.
