Global trends in merger

control enforcement


"Antitrust authorities have responded strongly to the global appetite for strategic deals which bring about further industry consolidation. They have been unflinching in their merger control scrutiny and punitive in their measures for those that do not comply with the rules. In 2018 we expect more of the same, with an increased focus on vertical mergers and continued vigour in enforcement of procedural obligations. Throw into the mix the personnel changes at the helm of the U.S. antitrust agencies and we are set for a fascinating year."

- Antonio Bavasso, Partner Global Co-Head Antitrust
