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 U.S. 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 be in the know of the latest updates and developments in vertical merger enforcement in order to help your client 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. Speakers will also present best practices and strategies to effectively address the important issues surrounding this significant topic.
Some of the major topics that will be covered in this course are:
• Vertical Merger Enforcement – Latest Trends and Developments
• Recent Enforcement Actions
• Notable Court Rulings
• Practical Tips and Strategies
• What Lies Ahead
