This issue is a Santa grab bag with something for everyone—a collection of articles presenting the last word (for 2012 at least) on some of the issues we looked at this year. On the domestic front, Mandy Reeves analyzes how the Agencies’ reinvigorated litigation appetite affects merger analysis, Allen Grunes reveals the divergency between the DOJ and FTC in their approach to innovation, and Kevin O’Connor asks if the national and state authorities are playing nicely together. Internationally, Greta Lichtenbaum & Beth France look at the new FCPA guidance, John Connor studies private recoveries from criminal cartels, Alejandro Faya uses Mexico as a case study for FDI, and Mario Ybar & Carolina Bawletza highlight Chile’s efforts to encourage competition. Have a wonderful holiday season!
