Cleary Gottlieb partners Nicholas Levy and Patrick Bock, and counsel Esther Kelly co-authored the “EU Merger Control” chapter in The Merger Control Review, ed. 12.

The authors begin their examination of the topic by saying, “On 21 September 1990, the EC Merger Regulation entered into force,2 introducing into EU competition law a legal framework for the systematic review of mergers, acquisitions and other forms of concentration. The EC Merger Regulation has been transformative, effecting significant and permanent change to EU competition law and practice. This chapter contains a short introduction to the principal provisions of the EC Merger Regulation and identifies certain of the most important developments in its recent application.”
