The competition law aspects of a transaction can impact on the mechanics, structure and timing of the deal itself and the surrounding process. If not managed correctly, it can have a significant impact on the timetable and, in some circumstances, on the viability of the transaction as a whole.
We support transactional teams in the review of mergers, acquisitions and joint ventures for competition law purposes. This includes deal-related due diligence, identification and management of any merger control clearance requirements, input into transactional documents, and management of interactions between the parties prior to completion.
I assess whether deals trigger any merger notification requirements on a worldwide basis, and prepare and manage multi-jurisdictional filings from notification through to clearance.
