Successfully remedying the potential anticompetitive effects of a merger can be more of an art than a science. Not only is every deal specific but every remedy contains an element of crystal ball-gazing; enforcers must look to the future and successfully predict outcomes. As such, practical guidance for both practitioners and regulators in navigating this challenging environment is critical.

This fifth edition of the Merger Remedies Guide provides just such analysis. It examines remedies throughout their life cycle: through how remedies are structured and implemented, to how enforcers ensure compliance. Insights from four jurisdictions around the world supplement the global analysis to inform the reality of multi-jurisdictional deals. The Guide draws not only on the wisdom and expertise of distinguished practitioners from a range of jurisdictions, but also the perspective of former enforcers. It brings together unparalleled proficiency in the field and provides essential guidance for all competition professionals.
