Description

Antitrust law has a great impact on best practices credit professionals should follow when making credit decisions and obtaining information from and communicating with other credit professionals. The speakers will discuss how credit professionals can navigate within the bounds of antitrust law when making their credit and other business decisions; what matters can and cannot be discussed and what information can and cannot be exchanged with other credit professionals, both one on one and in a credit group or other group setting; the potential consequences of antitrust violations, and how to protect your company from those consequences.
