John Snyder will moderate the panel “The PE Effect: Antitrust Scrutiny Abounds.” This session will discuss the increased skepticism privacy equity firms face by antitrust enforcers and the public including “roll-ups,” interlocks, PE’s leverage of debt and impact on labor, service, quality, and innovation.
