Recent Trends in Antitrust M&A Enforcement


Created on January 30, 2020





Antitrust continues to be top-of-mind for businesses considering mergers and acquisitions. In 2019, the U.S. Antitrust Agencies remained extremely active in investigating - and challenging - transactions, with enforcement activity up significantly over 2018. Join Kail Jethmalani of Axinn, Veltrop & Harkrider LLP as he explains notable recent enforcement actions, including the FTC's successful litigation to unwind a consummated transaction, DOJ's prosecution of a transaction structured to avoid the HSR Act and an unprecedented Tunney Act evidentiary hearing, and the key takeaways from each. In the process, you will gain a deeper understanding of the nuts and bolts of antitrust review so you can best counsel and advise your clients through the process. 

Learning Objectives:

  1. Examine U.S. antitrust law and its application to M&A
  2. Compare how enforcement of post-consummation transactions differs from unconsummated transactions
  3. Discuss the implications of HSR avoidance
  4. Counsel clients on how Tunney Act proceedings can affect transactions
