Jessica K. Delbaum, John Skinner Merger remedies in the US: An overview of the leading cases

894

This Special Issue presents a collection of important U.S. federal antitrust merger remedies since 2000. The merger remedies guidance documents issued by the U.S. federal antitrust enforcement agencies, the Antitrust Division of the United States Department of Justice (“DOJ”) and the Federal Trade Commission (“FTC”) (each, an “Agency,” or collectively, the “Agencies”), are the right starting point for anyone trying to understand the U.S. approach to merger remedies. These documents, however, speak in generalities and cite to a small number of illustrative examples. The goal of this compilation is to provide a broader collection of illustrative examples, which, taken as a whole, presents the Agencies’ current approach to the analysis, implementation and enforcement of merger remedies.
