Vertical mergers proliferated in many markets for the past years, hoping that by doing so, could increase business synergies and produce more efficient and low-cost operations. However, some of the recent cases of vertical mergers have created debate on the traditional merger enforcement paradigm of the US antitrust agencies, the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), stating that such vertical integration could result in practical consequences for companies and has led to a series of public hearings and significant enforcement actions.
With the continuously growing debate on the application of vertical integration, it becomes more imperative for companies to know about the latest updates and developments in vertical merger enforcement in order to help clients avoid unwanted risk and pitfalls in compliance.
In this live webcast, a seasoned panel of thought leaders and professionals brought together by The Knowledge Group will provide and present to the audience an in-depth analysis of the fundamentals as well as recent developments in vertical merger enforcement.
