Announcements




Welcome

On behalf of the Mergers & Acquisitions Committee, welcome to our committee webpage.

We have designed this webpage to be a resource for merger and acquisition practitioners - a "one-stop shop" for the most current government and private materials related to merger policy and enforcement. In addition, we will regularly post recent developments in the merger area, as well as advise you of continuing Committee activities. If you have any suggestions of features we should add or improve, please let us know by contacting any of the Committee leadership.

Again, welcome and we hope you come back often.

Norman Armstrong and Ronan Harty, Co-Chairs
