On November 8, the LSTA hosted a webinar on “Antitrust Issues in Syndicated Loan Transactions” presented by Olivier Antoine, Scott Lessne, and Dan Zelenko of Crowell & Moring. Although syndicated loan arrangements undoubtedly foster efficiencies for both borrowers and lenders and competition by increasing the overall availability of credit and by spreading risk amongst a group of lenders, the potential exists for the creation of anti-competition agreements and for the impermissible sharing of information at critical points in the syndication process.
