About this episode

Fiona Garside, a Senior Expertise Lawyer in Ashurst's Antitrust, Foreign Investment and Regulation team, is joined by partners Esther Kelly and Neil Cuninghame.

Regulatory review of deals has become increasingly complex in the last few years and that looks set to continue in 2023.

The trio discuss the interaction between merger control review and foreign direct investment control, increasing flexibility for regulators to review deals that do not meet clear cut thresholds, and the impact of international co-operation and regulatory reform on deals in 2023.

This is not intended to be a comprehensive review of all developments in the law and practice, or to cover all aspects of those referred to. Listeners should take legal advice before applying it to specific issues or transactions.
