Merger control is evolving worldwide. Of particular note is the emergence of merger control regimes in regions such as Chile, the Central African Economic and Monetary Community, and the Philippines. Other merger control regimes, including Germany, have updated turnover thresholds. Jurisdictions such as Brazil and Israel are revising their fast-track merger review process. Also notable are Hungary, the United States, and other regimes that have revised fines for potential gun-jumping and merger control violations. This inaugural issue of the Mayer Brown Merger Control Update discusses new developments with respect to merger control in these and other jurisdictions around the world.
