Navigating increasingly complex merger control

Securing merger control clearance has never been more complex. Transactions face tougher review by antitrust authorities, who are more likely to apply increasingly novel theories of harm, in particular regarding innovation, vertical issues, and future competition. Dealmakers need to prepare for more uncertain outcomes, as well as divergent approaches by authorities reviewing in parallel. More transactions now face review with new merger control regimes arising (that include also foreign direct investment and subsidy control regimes), and existing regimes making use of alternative non-turnover based thresholds to claim jurisdiction over any transactions where they may have competition concerns.

Our merger control webinar series aims to help you steer through this increasing complex environment with a series of quarterly briefings on global merger control developments as well as ad hoc briefings on specific hot topics.
