The theme of this fourth annual Global Merger Control conference focuses on the recent proliferation of merger control regulation and enforcers. Such a proliferation leads to the inevitable question of whether, in this new regulatory environment, mergers and acquisitions have been made subject to undue obstacles. Indeed, of more that 200 sovereign states in the world, some 125 now apply merger control rules to transactions meeting thresholds of various intensity. This event is organized by Concurrences Review, with the support of Dechert, McKinsey & Company and Advolis.
