Antitrust practitioners are often called on to evaluate a merger or an acquisition for any antitrust related risks associated with that deal. If the deal presents an antitrust risk, the practitioner’s advice on how best to mitigate the risk can be critical. A better familiarity with merger review will enable practitioners to spot issues early and provide relevant advice on risks presented by transactions and how to address them.

This live, 90-minute webinar is designed to give antitrust and M&A practitioners a better understanding of the practice and process of merger review from start to finish. For practitioners who do not deal with antitrust merger review on a regular basis, this program will provide an overview of what to expect and how to best navigate the process to a successful result.

Educational Objectives:
•Evaluating and allocating antitrust risk in M&A transactions
•Gaining an understanding of Hart-Scott-Rodino (HSR) reporting, process and rules
•Understanding the agencies approach to merger review, and to pitfalls to be aware of
•Exploring the merger review process and what to expect
•How to deal with remedies and get to closing
