On February 18, Skadden held a webinar on “Trends and Developments in Merger Controls,” which reviewed the most critical merger enforcement issues from 2015 and looked ahead to the key cases and developments to watch in 2016, including Sysco/US Foods, GE/Electrolux, Staples/Office Depot and Synergy/Steris. The panel also focused on the challenges associated with clearing complex deals, including strategic considerations around remedy proposals, enforcers’ willingness to “litigate the fix” and the increasing coordination between antitrust agencies around the world. The panel was moderated by Washington, D.C. partner Steven Sunshine. Partner Maria Raptis and counsel Kenneth Schwartz were panelists.
