In a global regulatory environment with competition authorities from the U.S. to Europe and from Brazil to China reviewing transactions, companies need expert, timely, and practical antitrust advice from experienced advisors. Covington’s global antitrust transactions group provides a destination practice for companies seeking to anticipate and manage antitrust issues raised in their mergers, acquisitions, joint ventures, and other transactions.

Strategically located in the U.S., Europe, and Asia, our team collaborates closely to identify potential competition law issues, design and manage clearance strategies, and manage and supervise local counsel, to secure timely merger clearances around the world.

In addition to working closely with our corporate team, we frequently draw upon the expertise of our firm’s regulatory practices to anticipate issues and to develop strategies for achieving our clients’ business objectives. As a result of this extensive collaboration, we are well versed in the issues raised by the application of antitrust law in transactions in regulated sectors, including pharmaceutical, financial services, health care, defense, airline, energy, electricity, telecommunications, cable, radio, alcoholic beverages, and IP-intensive industries.

Our antitrust transactional clients also benefit from a team that includes several former senior enforcement officials who were deeply involved in the development of merger policy and gained direct experience with how government authorities conduct merger reviews and reach enforcement decisions. Our experience and expertise enables us to “see around the corners” and provide incisive and practical advice that reduces the risk of surprise and helps our clients get their deals done.
