Sample Antitrust-Related Provisions in M&A Agreements--2012 Expanded Edition
This note provides a much expanded sample of antitrust-related provisons in M&A agreements over the one we posted last year. As before, the sample provisions have been taken (sometimes with a little modification) from actual M&A agreements.
This sample will give you with a good idea of the wide variety of provisions parties have used in dealing with
Of course, every deal stands on its own. The language that has been used in one deal may not be appropriate for another deal, and inclusion of a provision in this sample does not constitute an endorsement of the language. Still, I find the collection helpful in drafting and negotiating the antitrust provisions in M&A agreements.
