Episode Notes

There have been plenty of developments in the federal government since the beginning of 2017, but how has the new administration affected antitrust reviews of mergers and acquisitions? In this report from the ABA Section of Antitrust Law Spring Meeting 2018, host Lindsey Champlin interviews Paula Render, partner at Jones Day, and John Snyder, partner at Alston & Bird, about the developments and trends in merger and acquisition antitrust law. They discuss deal flow, the effect of not having a full panel of Federal Trade Commission (FTC) members on the review process, and policy shifts. Stay tuned for Render and Snyder’s thoughts on the amount of cases that are won by the Department of Justice and the FTC and their advice for law students looking to go into antitrust.
