Burges Salmon Competition partner Matthew O’Regan and associate Marc Shrimpling have recently published an article on developments in UK merger control in 2012 and the first half of 2013.

The UK Merger Control article contains an in-depth analysis of the main jurisdictional, procedural and substantive developments in the decisions of the Office of Fair Trading and Competition Commission, as well as a number of important judgments of the Competition Appeal Tribunal and the Court of Appeal in merger cases. It also looks forward to the institutional and procedural changes to merger control contained in the Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Act 2013, which will take effect on 1 April 2014 when a new authority, the Competition and Markets Authority, replaces the Office of Fair Trading and Competition Commission.

This article is an extract from The European Antitrust Review 2014.

If you would like any further information on UK or EU merger control or on any other competition, please contact Matthew O’Regan or another member of the Competition team.
