And in the unlikely event that a raid or investigation occurs, we can provide you with an instant response team. We can also help you if you are involved in a broader market review or investigation. We have significant experience of assisting clients in responding to information requests, attending hearings, developing arguments to deploy during the investigation and working with economists and other consultants

Merger Control
Merger Control

Merger control is a vitally important element of many transactions. The early identification of where a transaction needs to be notified, and the incorporation of the most appropriate merger control strategy within the deal approach, is essential to its success. If merger control is neglected, the transaction may not proceed, may need to be undone or may not realise its full potential. Our expertise in obtaining merger clearances in the UK, before the European Commission and across the world will smooth the complexities of making your deal happen and help to avoid any nasty surprises. Our primary objective is to ensure that merger control is dealt with efficiently and puts you in the strongest position.


Sanctions & Export Controls
