Commissioner of Competition Successful in CCS Case
|Area||Competition, Antitrust and Foreign Investment|
Contested merger cases are rare beasts. The great majority of parties to a merger are unwilling to accept the time, costs and uncertainties of fighting the Commissioner of Competition (“Commissioner”) before the Competition Tribunal and instead decide to avoid litigation by negotiating a consent agreement with the Commissioner or by abandoning or modifying their merger. The CCS matter is one of those rare contested merger cases.
