Some of the world’s biggest tech companies, like Apple, Facebook, and Google, are facing much criticism about their size and behavior. Much of the criticism is from the U.S. Congress. In this episode, we’re exploring the current state of Big Tech growth, the history and development of antitrust laws, and how the U.S. government is dealing with these major tech players.
Joining me in this episode is Tom Dillickrath. Tom is an Antitrust & Competition partner in Sheppard Mullin’s Washington, D.C. office, focusing on antitrust litigation and merger investigations. Prior to joining the firm, he served as Deputy Chief Trial Counsel at the Federal Trade Commission’s Bureau of Competition. During his time at the FTC, Tom litigated antitrust cases brought by the FTC involving mergers and acquisitions and other business practices affecting U.S. consumers.
