This fourth edition has been extensively revised to cover in-depth the new EC Merger Regulations (in force on 1st May 2004) which have transformed the EC merger regime. It examines the obligations large firms/businesses now face, provides detailed discussion of the separate issues and sets out a series of practical suggestions for working legally under the new regime.

  • Analyses the Horizontal Merger Guidelines and other recent Commission notices
  • Includes the text of relevent legislation (including the Merger Regulations)
  • Features a table of EU merger decisions
  • Considers developments in US and Commonwealth competition regimes, putting the EU changes into global context
