About the Program

This session will explore antitrust issues that have arisen in the area of real estate. Specifically, we will discuss instances where restrictive covenants in real estate contracts or conveyance documents have led to antitrust liability, including DOJ investigations. We will also examine the antitrust implications of “pocket listings” and the ways courts have analyzed such conduct under traditional antitrust doctrine. We will also discuss recent developments in price-fixing litigation in the real estate broker context. Finally, we will cover the Connecticut Supreme Court’s recent ruling in Reserve Realty, LLC v. Windemere Reserve, LLC, which revisited the tying doctrine under Connecticut’s state antitrust statutes.
