Navigating Your Licensing Case Pre-SOAH (Sep 2020)

Have you ever regretted not pursuing an action or negotiation prior to SOAH? Have you ever thought there might be alternative ways to settle your case prior to SOAH that no one ever uses? And was there ever a time you wished you would have worked-up your licensing case during the agency’s investigation instead of after the SOAH complaint filing? This presentation’s goal is to alleviate these concerns and answer these questions.

FTC, the division provides the “active supervision” needed over rulemakings so that state boards controlled by active market participants can invoke state-action antitrust immunity. Explore the background, procedures, and work of the division since its establishment in 2019.
