With merger control laws multiplying across the globe, getting an international deal through the regulatory process is more complex than ever. Leading the way is the European Commission, which has not always had an easy relationship with the high-tech industry, illustrated by its actions in recent cases such as Oracle/Sun.
Because of the important nature and urgency of this topic, we have asked Shearman & Sterling LLP to make available a panel of distinguished speakers, including EU antitrust partners from their Brussels office and partners with extensive experience steering transactions through worldwide merger control requirements.
Our panel of distinguished speakers will analyze the cultural, case management and substantive challenges facing high-tech companies in merger reviews in the EU; provide an overview of developments in key Asian jurisdictions; and discuss practical strategies for navigating the international merger review landscape. The Directors Roundtable is a civic group which organizes the preeminent worldwide programming for Directors and their advisors.
