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.
