Chapter Summary

This introductory chapter of The Regulation of Transnational Mergers in International and European Law discusses the problems regarding the regulation of trans-national mergers. The identification of the competent competition authorities in transnational mergers is complicated by two factors. Firstly, transnational mergers affect several national markets; but, on the other side, the scope of application of national competition laws and-of national merger control laws- is usually limited to the territory of the regulating countries. Secondly, the great number of countries that have adopted competition law in their national legal systems must be borne in mind. The multi-jurisdictional review of trans-national mergers can raise several problems which may be subsumed into three general categories: legal problems, business problems and political problems. The chapter also presents an overview of the book and how the other chapters of the book are organized.

Keywords: business problems; competition law; legal problems; political problems; trans-national mergers
