Merger Clearance

From routine filings to contested transactions, our team helps clients navigate the complexities of antitrust law.

Our antitrust and competition law team represents clients in connection with mergers, joint ventures, and strategic alliances around the world and coordinates antitrust efforts on their behalf from initial notification through closing. We routinely work with the firm’s M&A clients to achieve their business objectives, handling premerger notification with federal authorities, and our team is skilled in addressing all manner of federal- and state-level inquiries from agencies tasked with antitrust enforcement.

Members of our team have served in key regulatory and enforcement positions within the government, including the Antitrust Division of the U.S. Department of Justice. We understand the intricacies of antitrust merger clearance and the merger review process, and we know how to best position clients to achieve their objectives.

Our team is also well-versed in handling antitrust issues in highly regulated industries, such as healthcare and telecommunications, where there are often high-profile inquiries and added layers of agency review to navigate.

Husch Blackwell has the specific experience needed within my industry. They have a wide breadth of experience in the hundreds of legal issues that face universities and colleges each year. The team we work with is fantastic and I’m so pleased they added additional expertise to handle niche (but critical) NCAA work.
