A quarter century of EUMR: What next in the world of merger control? - Brussels 2015

8 March 2017 12:43pm

Agenda Details

As we mark the EUMR's first quarter century, we reflect on the changed landscape and consider what the next 25 years will bring: What are the building blocks of a successful merger control strategy? How should we plan deals for the future? You will hear perspectives on these and other key questions during an interactive debate between a cross-section of key stakeholders: senior agency officials, private practitioners and seasoned dealmakers.

Together we will

  • take stock of where we are now in terms of substantive and procedural law and process
  • identify emerging trends and examine the broader implications of globalisation and digitalisation for EU merger control
  • understand future prospects and challenges
  • consider what this all means for companies' merger strategies going forward
