Featuring: Stacey P. Slaughter, Partner, Robins Kaplan Miller & Ciresi LLP

The largest private equity firms in the United States, including Goldman Sachs, Bain Capital, The Blackstone Group L.P., Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co., L.P. Silver Lake, TPG Capital L.P., and the Carlyle Group have agreed to pay a total $590.5 million to settle allegations that their "club” bidding in leveraged buyouts of public companies violated antitrust laws.  In that case, Dahl, et al. v. Bain Capital Partners et al., plaintiffs are former shareholders of certain public companies who sold their shares to the defendant private equity firms in large leveraged buyouts ("LBOs") announced between 2003 and 2007. In 2007, the plaintiffs brought suit against the defendants, all major U.S. private equity firms, in the U.S. District Court, District of Massachusetts, alleging a market allocation and bid-rigging conspiracy that violates Section 1 of the Sherman Act, 15 U.S.C. § 1. Plaintiffs sought damages as a result of the defendants’ alleged collusion to not bid against each other on deals to drive down the prices of many takeovers of publicly traded companies.  This webinar will explore some of the novel legal issues and hurdles plaintiffs faced in this seven-year case.
