Panel Discussion: FTC, et al. v. Staples, Inc. et. al.

Clifford H. Aronson Tara L. Reinhart Steven C. Sunshine

Washington, D.C. antitrust and competition partner Tara Reinhart led a panel discussion at Skadden's New York office on October 25, addressing the impact of FTC, et al. v. Staples, Inc. et. al. The case has garnered significant media attention due to the FTC's unique argument that a merger between Staples and Office Depot would eliminate competition specifically in the business-to-business office supply market, rather than the loss of competition in the larger retail market. Antitrust and competition practice head Steven Sunshine and partner Clifford Aronson joined Ms. Reinhart on the panel.
