FTC and DOJ Joint Workshop: Conditional Pricing Practices: Economic Analysis and Legal Policy Implications

June 23, 2014


Washington, DC

On June 23, 2014, Cleary Gottlieb partner Leah Brannon participated in the U.S. Federal Trade Commission and Department of Justice joint public workshop “Conditional Pricing Practices: Economic Analysis and Legal Policy Implications.” The workshop focused on conditional pricing arrangements – practices in which prices are explicitly or effectively contingent on commitments to purchase or sell a specified share or volume of a single product or a mix of multiple products – such as loyalty or bundled pricing.

A principal goal of the workshop was to advance the economic understanding of the potential harms and benefits of conditional pricing practices and to reexamine their treatment under the antitrust laws.
