On the 21 January, in this live one hour webinar, Rebecca Nelson & Robert Bell will review and discuss the implications of the recent merger control / antitrust reforms and enforcement trends.

The webinar will cover:

  • The EU Commission’s plans to extend the EU Merger Regulation to the acquisition of non-controlling minority shareholdings.
  • A review of the EU Antitrust implementing regulation, Council Regulation No 1/2003 proposing convergence of National Competition Authorities investigation decision-making powers and procedures including fines and a possible unified leniency policy.
  • A look at recent US enforcement trends with respect to mergers (including investigations into and enforcement against non-reportable transactions) as well as antitrust generally.

Rebecca and Robert will provide practical tips and recommendations about how to use these reforms to obtain swifter clearances in multi-jurisdictional deals as well as the possible impact of a more unified leniency policy upon cartels.
