The Law and Practice of UK Merger Control covers in detail, the rules of UK merger control. These rules have been significantly reformed by the provisions of the Enterprise Act 2002, and this essential work provides a comprehensive, in-depth analysis and description of the new regime.

The book covers the various institutions that administer merger control, including the details of the legal definition of a merger, the administrative details of the process of obtaining clearance from the OFT, an analysis of the new test by which mergers are assessed and details of the way in which UK merger control interfaces with EC merger control.
