Please join HELA for a lunch talk on the challenges faced by an in-house antitrust counsel with Anneleen Streatemans. Ms. Streatemans is Global Legal Director Competition at AB InBev. She leads AB InBev’s global antitrust strategy and is overseeing AB InBev’s antitrust compliance worldwide.
Ms. Streatemans will first talk about her career path and will expand on questions such as what made her switch from being an antitrust lawyer practicing at a law firm to working in-house, how being an in-house counsel is different from working at a law firm and how experience gained at a law firm is relevant in-house.
Ms. Streatemans will furthermore discuss some of the challenges that arise in ensuring antitrust compliance at a multinational/multi-billion company. She will in particular elaborate on what happens after a court or antitrust authority has ruled on antitrust questions and how large multinationals ensure their employees stick to antitrust rules even when those rules remain grey.
