#4 Can We Have Mergers Without Tears? Understanding the Basics of Merger Review.

Merger control is one of the most high-profile areas of antitrust law, but jargon can all too easily obscure the key issues in this domain. Our guest, ABA Antitrust Section Merger Committee Co-Chair Mike Keeley, is an expert in getting mergers cleared by the antitrust agencies. In this episode, Mike talks with John Roberti and Sergei Zaslavsky about the process and substance of shepherding a merger from inception to approval. Listen to this episode for an (almost) jargon-free demystification of mergers, and to learn about the “freak-out” test for market definition.
