Antitrust & Merger Control

Bremer’s regional antitrust and merger control practice spans continents and industries with lawyers who are local to various markets in the Near and Middle East and Africa. Our attorneys combine in-depth knowledge of local cultures, customs, laws and regulations to help clients mitigate risk and advance their objectives.

Mergers, acquisitions, joint ventures, and corporate expansions are all subject to global antitrust laws. As antitrust authorities seek to strengthen cross-border antitrust enforcement, corporate entities are experiencing a growing need for a strategic approach to achieving approvals from these various overning bodies.

Bremer helps clients with a coordinated approach to obtaining antitrust approvals. Our attorneys provide clients with expert analysis on the impact of antitrust regulation on their business, the risks associated with any given transaction, and the various merger control filings required to receive approval. 

We work with our clients to understand their business objectives, then develop merger-compliant plans designed to obtain antitrust clearances in the MENA region. Our physical presence in the Near and Middle East and Africa provides our attorneys with the market knowledge and cultural awareness required to successfully achieve these clearances.
