Antitrust in 2023: 10 key themes - growing unpredictability and brand new enforcement tools
In 2023 antitrust enforcement globally will continue to respond to calls for it to do more to address a range of crises and social concerns. Authorities are being given enhanced powers and new tools, and are tackling cases that they might not have pursued a few years ago.
This is significantly increasing unpredictability, so companies need to stay alert and flexible, following closely new legislation and policy changes, and planning well ahead in complex cross-border M&A.
Freshfields’ latest Essential Antitrust podcast presents the firm’s recently published annual antitrust forecast for the coming year and why it remains crucial for business to keep its finger on the pulse of the global antitrust environment in the months ahead.
