A Transatlantic Perspective on the Current Trends in EU Merger Control and the Annulment of the UK Mobile Case

  • Webinar

Partner Ben Gris (Washington, D.C.-Antitrust) and counsel Sara Ashall (Brussels-Antitrust) participated in a webinar titled “A transatlantic perspective on the current trends in EU merger control and the annulment of the UK Mobile case” organized by Lexology on November 18, 2020.

As two former enforcers, Sara and Ben picked through the details and ramifications of the European court’s landmark judgment to overturn one of Commissioner Vestager’s key first term merger decisions – Hutchison 3G/Telefonica, and what lessons the Commission could learn from the United States in the wake of the annulled decision. Ben and Sara also took the opportunity to consider the likely antitrust agenda under the new Biden administration.
