Merger control and
joint ventures

Our expertise in merger control comes both from advising businesses on their merger and joint ventures and from making representations on behalf of third parties. We can take a realistic view of the likely application of merger control principles to an acquisition or joint venture. We will also be able to assist with reviewing due diligence for competition issues to make sure you are not buying your way into a competition problem which could be dealt with now. We can represent interveners in merger control proceedings before the European and the UK competition authorities when competitors are engaged in transactions which could adversely affect your interests.
