During the last decade, there has been an increase in M&A activity in digital markets. There is a clear tendency from the antitrust authorities to update the analysis and the perspective when dealing with antitrust cases and merger reviews in these markets. These developments bring new challenges for companies, experts and lawyers.
What is happening around the world in antitrust regulation of digital markets? What is the approach of the authorities to M&A transactions involving technology companies? How has cross-shareholding in the tech world in the mergers review process evolved? What are the main M&A decisions in digital markets and what principles can be determined for the future? Our panel will discuss the main current issues in competition and digital markets, focusing on the main mergers, acquisitions and joint ventures in these markets.
