Antitrust and Trade Regulation: Justice Department Issues Updated Policy Guide to Merger Remedies, by Jonathan Rusch

On June 17, the Antitrust Division of the Department of Justice issued an updated Policy Guide to Merger Remedies. The Guide, which updates the Antitrust Division’s 2004 guidance, states that “it is intended to provide guidance to Antitrust Division staff in their work analyzing proposed remedies for mergers.” It includes material on key principles in tailoring effective remedies, types of remedies (structural, conduct, and hybrid), practical considerations in implementing effective remedies, and compliance.
