In one of the four webinars inclusive in 2015 Competition Section membership, Davina Garrod, partner, Akin Gump Stauss Hauer and Feld LLP, looks at multijurisdictional merger control and offers a practical guide.

Over 100 jurisdictions around the world enforce merger control rules.

As more countries launch merger control regimes against the backdrop of complex and evolving existing rules, parties increasingly devote significant resources to conducting an in-depth competition analysis before signing.

This one hour webinar will provide:

  • a practical guide to undertaking a multijurisdictional analysis
  • navigating the major regimes, including the EU, UK and China
  • advice on managing local counsel and achieving swift approvals
  • insights on allocating risk, and drafting non-competes and other key clauses in sales and purchase agreements

This webinar was held on 18 March, but it can still be accessed, via the link below, until the end of 2015, by Competition Section members.
