Transactions and practices: EU Mergers & acquisitions

The European Commission has power under the EU Merger Regulation to vet major cross-border mergers and acquisitions, and to prohibit them when they are incompatible with the internal market. This Practice note considers the scope and application of the Merger Regulation in relation to mergers and acquisitions. (Joint ventures are considered separately in the Practice note, EU Joint ventures).
