The Federal Trade Commission and Justice Department are co-hosting a workshop to facilitate public dialogue on the 2023 Draft Merger Guidelines the agencies announced in July.
The workshop is aimed at promoting a dynamic discussion about the draft guidelines to complement the comments submitted to the agencies by the public. The goal of the merger guidelines update is to better reflect how the agencies determine a merger’s effect on competition in the modern economy and evaluate proposed mergers under the law.
The virtual workshop will feature two panel discussions with former enforcers, academics, economists and practitioners regarding questions and issues on which public comment will be most useful.
WilmerHale Partner Dominic Vote will speak on the panel titled “Evidentiary and Analytical Tools for Assessing Competition” at 1:45 p.m. ET. Participants that register will receive a link to view the event virtually.
