US and EU Merger Control Chapters - Chambers & Partners Practice Guide

July 19, 2018

Dechert has authored the United States and European Union chapters of Chambers & Partners’ Global Practice Guide to Merger Control 2019. The guide includes detailed analysis of the merger control regimes in 23 countries, providing clients and practitioners with expert guidance on local law and how to effect cross-border mergers involving multiple regulators. More than 50 questions cover legislation and enforcing authorities, jurisdiction, procedure, substance of reviews, decisions, ancillary restraints, third party rights, appeals and recent developments. The Global Practice Guides compare laws across jurisdictions, with authors selected for their leading reputations in Chambers’ Guides to the Legal Profession.

This pragmatic, multi-jurisdictional guidance confirms Dechert’s status as a global leader for transatlantic work and a go-to firm for complex antitrust advice in the world’s most significant and advanced merger control regimes. Dechert lawyers based in Washington D.C., New York, Brussels, Paris and Frankfurt contributed to the effort. The U.S. chapter was authored by Mike Cowie, Paul Denis, James Fishkin and Rani Habash. The EU chapter was authored by Alec Burnside, Hans Jürgen Meyer-Lindemann, Mélanie Thill-Tayara and Clemens Graf York von Wartenburg. Associates involved in the preparation of the chapters were Beverly Ang, Simon Hetsch, Adam Kidane and Marion Provost.
