Description of Product

Competition law has become a key regulatory consideration of M&A transactions throughout the world, with Singapore's merger control regime being one of the fastest growing in Asia since its inception. Written by the most experienced and recognised experts in the area of Singapore and ASEAN merger control, this definitive textbook encompasses an overview and background of the Singapore merger control regime, recent developments in local case law and relevant international cases. Importantly, it also explores economic and legal principles as well as methodologies and practical implications for takeovers, mergers and acquisitions in Singapore.

An expansive resource of merger control knowledge and practical tips derived from the authors' experience in having handled close to 75% of all merger filings lodged with the Competition Commission of Singapore ("CCS"), this publication provides an insightful account of the Singapore merger control regime and how it is applied in practice. Designed to assist a wide range of consumers, Merger Control on Singapore: Law and Practice is a valuable and indispensible resource for competition lawyers, M&A advisers, bankers, deal practitioners, regulators involved in competition law in ASEAN and undergraduate, postgraduate law and economics students.
