We advise on requirements for merger control clearance including from the Competition and Consumer Protection Commission (CCPC), the Minister for Communications and the European Commission.
We specialise in advising clients on merger control risk when buying and selling businesses, including in competitive bid auctions. Our purpose is to create value for our clients by supporting them on winning regulatory approval of private mergers and acquisitions, public takeovers, joint ventures, cooperation or distribution agreements and disposals. We act for clients who may not be parties to a transaction but who may be concerned about a transaction's impact in their industry (for example, because they are suppliers or customers of the merging parties); or who may wish to advocate for a particular approach to market definition and related issues in their industry; or who may want to purchase businesses being divested by other merging parties. We also advise on other related regulatory aspects of acquisitions and joint ventures such as any media-related and sectoral regulatory issues as well as litigation-related matters regarding merger control.
