The FTC and DOJ have announced final changes to the HSR filing rules. Filing parties must now provide an expanded set of documents with the HSR form and will want to take into account the new HSR filing requirements when negotiating and drafting deal-related documents. Additional burdens are imposed on private equity firms and investment firms, which will need to update their record-keeping procedures in order to comply with the new requirements.
