Mega-Mergers: Squaring the circle

Mergers have gained momentum in recent years. In FY 2015, 67 proposed mergers were valued at more than $10 billion. That is more than double the annual volume in 2014. We have witnessed an increased trend not only in the number of big mergers, but in the value thereof. As Bill Baer, former Assistant Attorney General for the Antitrust Division of the U.S. Department of Justice, put it in March 2016: “The merger wave is back. Big time.”

This month, the Antitrust Chronicle (AC) brings you a special edition on recent developments in merger control with highlights featuring articles on mega-mergers in a variety of sectors, filings in different jurisdictions, due process and risk allocation in protracted investigations.
