A Fireside Chat with Former FTC Chairs Tim Muris and Maureen Ohlhausen

December 1, 2023 at 1:00 PM ET

The current FTC has criticized prior Commission positions, stating they are making a sharp departure from the decades-long approach they inherited. Almost three years into the current administration, how have these efforts fared? Has the FTC actually adopted a different standard in place of the consumer welfare standard and does it accurately reflect the law, as they claim? How durable will their efforts to implement changes likely be? This fireside chat led by former FTC Chief of Staff Svetlana Gans will answer these and other important questions.

Hon. Maureen K. Ohlhausen, Partner, Baker Botts LLP; Former Acting Chairman and Commissioner, Federal Trade Commission
