Best Practices to Minimize DOJ, FTC and State AG Challenges and Gain Merger Clearance
Recording of a 90-minute CLE webinar with Q&A
This CLE course will examine the government’s heightened antitrust scrutiny of non-Hart-Scott-Rodino (HSR) reportable transactions.

The panel will review these and other key questions:
