Merger control

Magenta has a deep experience of the European and national rules on merger control. The firm can advise clients at every stage of their merger and acquisition operations, and in the creation of joint ventures, in particular, by:

  • Conducting a project feasibility study (determining the controllability of the operation at national and European level, analysing and anticipating any competition issues that may arise, identifying those which may require multi-filing etc.).
  • Filing the operation to the national or European competition authorities.
  • Assisting during the control procedure (competition analysis, negotiating potential commitments) until the final decision of the authority is obtained.
