UK Merger Control in 2018

Pinsent Masons and RBB Economics have prepared a report which analyses UK merger control enforcement over the last year to help inform businesses of the approach to take when seeking clearance from the UK’s Competition & Markets Authority for mergers or acquisitions.

The report reviews the key trends for M&A activity over the past year and assesses the approach that the UK Competition & Markets Authority is taking when choosing to review, investigate and in rare circumstances, block mergers altogether. It also covers recent key policy developments that can be expected to affect M&A activity over the coming year, including Brexit.

Authored by our competition law experts, Alan Davis and Angelique Bret, and Bojana Ignjatovic at RBB Economics, the report first appeared in Global Legal Insights: Merger Control 2018.
