In February 2023, Joel Bamford, Director at Fingleton and previously Senior Director of Mergers at the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA), spoke to Matt Evans from DLA Piper in episode 1 of their new podcast, Navigating UK Merger Control.
Joel and Matt discuss what merger control is and why listeners should be interested. They touch upon the CMA's role, when to notify, and the decision-making process. They also discuss the impact of Brexit, merger control as a policy tool, and where the UK has broken ranks with other authorities.
