Concurrences + Dechert + Compass Lexecon

The theme of this fifth annual Global Merger Control conference focuses on the recent challenges faced by competition authorities and general counsels in the merger sector. The recent proliferation of merger control regulation and enforcers leads to the inevitable question of whether, in this new regulatory environment, mergers and acquisitions have been made subject to undue obstacles. In particular, the issue of gun jumping has recently made healines with the two decisions SFR-Altice rendered by the Autorité and the Commission. Those decisions emphasized both the significant importance of the risk of penalties and the need of good practices. This event is organized by Concurrences Review, with the support of Dechert and Compass Lexecon.
