Merger Control: Second Edition

The In-House Lawyer Logo

The aim of this guide is to provide its readers with a pragmatic overview of merger control laws and regulations across a variety of jurisdictions.

Each chapter of this guide provides information about jurisdictional thresholds, the substantive test, process, remedies, penalties, appeals, as well as the authors view on planned future reforms of the merger control regime.

The Q&A template for each chapter has been provided by Alex Nourry of Clifford Chance. Each chapter has been written exclusively by firms ranked within The Legal 500.
