The aim of this guide is to provide its readers with a pragmatic overview of merger control laws and regulations across a variety of jurisdictions.

Each chapter of this guide provides information about jurisdictional thresholds, the substantive test, process, remedies, penalties, appeals, as well as the authors view on planned future reforms of the merger control regime. This guide does not cover clearances that may be required under foreign investment laws or sector-specific regulatory and licensing regimes.

The Q&A template for each chapter has been provided by Alex Nourry of Clifford Chance.
