For mergers, acquisitions and joint ventures between companies of certain sizes, the relevant competition authorities must be notified. We advise clients in the structuring process and throughout the entire notification process, wherever they are in the world.
We help clients with the application of national, international or EU merger control laws for many different transactions. Often this analysis involves numerous merger control laws outside the EU necessitating coordination through our relationships with top-tier law firms around the world.
We also assist with the drafting of acquisitions, merger and joint venture agreements, and the structuring of the transaction to avoid filings where possible or to present the file in the best possible manner for the merger control process.
Furthermore, we prepare merger control filings for clients in the Benelux, the EU and multi-jurisdictional filings around the world through our relationships with top-tier law firms in other jurisdictions. We also assist our clients throughout the entire process before the relevant competition authorities – including possible appeals before national or EU courts.
