New Merger Review in Spain

Posted by D. Daniel Sokol

Spanish competition law has gone through a number of transformations.  Although merger review has existed since 1989 (in a mandatory form since 1999), the new Spanish Antitrust act includes several changes in the substance and procedure of merger review.  The main goal of the reforms are to make merger control decisions more rapid and independent.  Spanish academics Francisco Marcos and Albert Sánchez Graells of Instituto de Empresa discuss these changes in their article  El sistema de  control de concentraciones empresariales en la nueva Ley de Defensa de la Competencia.
