Against a backdrop of a new phase of development of merger control in the UK, and the revision of the EC merger control regime (in particular the nature of its relationship with the competent authorities of the Member States) the authors of Merger Control in the United Kingdom - leading experts with first rate regulatory, practical and academic experience - offer a comprehensive statement of the law, architecture, and procedure of merger control in the UK. They explain factors pertinent to the economic appraisal of mergers in a manner accessible to a legal audience; and give invaluable practical guidance on managing the transactional process and regulatory risk.
This website keeps readers up to date with key developments since publication. Coverage includes references to especially important merger decisions, and developments of which the authors feel readers should be made aware. The authors will provide updating commentary where appropriate.
