May 16, 2024

Dr. Hassan Faghani presented on a District of Columbia Bar webinar and CLE program that covered core concepts in platform economics—the economic dynamics and principles that govern platforms, which are digital or physical infrastructures that facilitate the exchange of goods, services, or information among different groups. He provided an expert’s perspective while presenting with Dennis P. Cuevas (D.C. Bar). The class also addressed concepts of platform competition and related antitrust issues, including:

  • Definition of platforms
  • Economic models in platforms
  • Competition issues in platforms and how competition affects incentive on different sides of a platform
  • Important legal and practical issues related to antitrust, such as market definition, monopolization, mergers, and coordinated behavior
