Antitrust and Unfair Competition Law

Competition: Spring 2022, Vol 32, No. 1

MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIR

Written by David M. Goldstein
Farmer Brownstein Jaeger Goldstein Klein & Siegel LLP San Francisco, CA

The Antitrust and Unfair Competition Law Section is delighted to publish its Spring 2022 edition of Competition. As with our recent Spring editions, this volume includes the panels and presentations at our November 2021 Golden State Antitrust and Unfair Competition Law Institute (GSI). Stephen Mclntyre, Editor of Competition, provides an excellent overview of the panels and articles in his column following this column.

The Section has undertaken several initiatives since COVID-19 arrived in early 2020. Most important, in conjunction with CLA’s creation of a new Privacy Section, our Executive Committee has refocused its energy, time, and efforts on antitrust and competition law. Under the leadership of Elizabeth Pritzker, our 2019-2020 Chair, we adopted the Section’s mission statement: "To engage, inform and inspire generations of lawyers to further the practice of antitrust and competition law in California." Building on our mission statement, our immediate past Chair, Qianwei Fu, led us to adopt a strategic plan to focus on four areas: programs, publications, membership, and diversity/inclusion. We added the UCL as an area of focus this past autumn.

Programs: Jiamie Chen is the chair of our Education Committee, which has continued to organize and sponsor panels and webinars. Most recently, Jill Manning and Kate Patchen organized the Section’s Fifth Annual Celebrating Women in Competition Law in California event on March 10, 2022. Many of us remember that the same event in March 2020 took place a few days before the first pandemic lockdown; it was wonderful to get together again (without masks) almost two years to the day.
