COVID-19 Antitrust Insights: Merger Review Updates

On March 23, 2020, Cravath prepared a resource for clients entitled “COVID‑19 Antitrust Insights: Merger Review Updates,” which summarizes new review processes that the Federal Trade Commission and U.S. Department of Justice have implemented in response to the COVID‑19 pandemic. The resource notes that the FTC’s and DOJ’s updated Hart‑Scott‑Rodino filing and merger review processes, including changes suspending early termination of the waiting period and new e‑filing and telework procedures, will remain in place until further notice. Cravath’s materials also discuss the difficulty of conducting market tests at this time, and how merger reviews conducted by foreign antitrust regulators are likely to experience delays as a result of updated measures and policy changes implemented in response to COVID‑19.
