Antitrust Audit in the Context of Transactions: Motives and Key Practical Aspects

Posted by D. Daniel Sokol

Christina Hummer (SCHINDHELM) and Lukas Leitner have published Antitrust Audit in the Context of Transactions: Motives and Key Practical Aspects.

ABSTRACT: Antitrust audits are increasingly essential as well as due diligence in the context of transactions, as a result of rules regarding parental liability and succession at a European level.

They must be conducted in a vast array of circumstances, for example when a firm or its competitors face a change in ownership or management as well as when antitrust investigations are being planned or carried out in the same or a related economic sector.

In addition to European law, national provisions (e.g. data protection) must be taken into account—particularly when planning the execution of an antitrust audit.
