CompLaw: Merger Control

In this new era of uncertainty, ensure your global merger control strategy is fit for purpose.

Article 22, abuse of dominance, digital markets, ecosystem theories of harm, FSR, FDI, new guidelines in the US – we have it covered.

The best strategies to help you navigate the increased uncertainties surrounding merger control

A View from the Commission

Hear directly from Guillaume Loriot, Deputy Director General, Mergers, DG Comp, European Commission on their current priorities.

Below-Threshold Mergers

Review how the competition authorities are approaching below-threshold mergers in light of the AG's opinion in Illumina/Grail and ex-post reviews under Article 102 after TowerCast.

Digital Markets & Innovation

Analyse the interplay of the DMA and merger control, the CMA's activist approach to digital markets after Microsoft/Activision, and ecosystem theories of harm in Booking/Etraveli.


Ensure you are up to date with how the foreign subsidies regulation is working in practice a year after implementation, and what the proliferation of FDI regimes across Europe means for transactions.

A Look to the US

Examine how merger control is developing in the US, including new merger guidelines and proposals for HSR notifications. Then, consider to what extent the US regime diverges from the EU and UK.  

Impact of Uncertainty on M&A Activity

Consider the impact of the proliferation of rules on M&A activity. Are they an impediment to new transactions? What does the wave of new regulation mean for the EU’s competitiveness in the current geopolitical climate?
