Last month, the Department of Justice Antitrust Division and the Federal Trade Commission (collectively, the Agencies) released the 2023 Merger Guidelines. The Guidelines are the latest iteration of a guidance document published by the Agencies since 1968, which has been revised numerous times over the years.

In this C&G Client Alert, Ronald Wick, John Roberti, and Derek Jackson write that the newest Guidelines articulate a more comprehensive and aggressive approach to merger enforcement than contemplated in recent iterations, and explore the most significant changes.

Cohen & Gresser partner John Roberti has been recognized as a Thought Leader in the Competition section of the Who’s Who Legal (WWL) guide, and partner Thomas Shortland has been recognized as a Future Leader in the guide’s Commercial Litigation section.

The Commercial Litigation report provides an in-depth analysis of the foremost litigators around the world who are singled out for their outstanding ability within this contentious context.” Tom is included among “standout practitioners in the litigation field” that WWL identified as future leaders in the market.
