The Antitrust & Competition practice invites you to join us for an invigorating session discussing US and EU merger enforcement.
Merger Enforcement Trends in the United States and European UnionLearn more about our Antitrust Practice
As the European Commission strengthens its position and becomes more dominant in merger enforcement, this discussion will offer practical advice for corporations learning about the differences between US and EC regulators in timing and filing issues, as well as key areas of focus for each. We will discuss the Merger Review Process Initiative introduced a year ago by the Department of Justice and provide our thoughts on its success in improving the merger process. And lastly we focus our thoughts on mergers in the current regulatory environment taking into account a declining global economy. Will regulators in the US and the EC become more or less lenient towards corporations seeking to merge in the next two years?
