Merger Control
  1. Merger Control

    It is a key part of any corporate transaction to identify if national or supra-national thresholds for merger control filing are met, and then to deal expeditiously with any filings required.

    We can assist with advice on a preliminary basis, and then advise on and carry out any filings required at a UK or EU level. We are also experienced at coordinating filings across multiple jurisdictions through our international network of law firms.
