Event Synopsis:

The Hart-Scott-Rodino Act (HSR) was set up to serve as effective guidelines for mergers, tender offers, and other acquisition transactions. Every year, the notifications standards are amended, sometimes significantly. Foreign regulatory authorities have been setting up their own premerger notification programs that affect US companies with global presence. In light of these recent changes, companies, their antitrust attorneys and consultants must have a complete understanding of the fundamentals and latest legal guideline updates and how those may impact their mergers, tender offers, and other acquisition transactions. In addition, for speedy conclusion of transactions, it is helpful to be able to anticipate and respond to any objections of the regulatory authorities to the transactions, such as those affecting market competitiveness, producer efficiency, consumer prices, and total welfare.

The Knowledge Group has assembled a panel of speaker experts and thought leaders to help walk you through the fundamentals and updates of HSR and foreign compliance requirements, and explain how to anticipate and respond to objections by regulatory authorities in 2011 in a Live two-hour Webcast.
