Due to the unique combination of M&A and Competition, we know the competition law challenges of transactions, better than anyone else. Challenges that parties do not always see, but which we are aware of.
TREBLE checks so that no cartel pig is bought in a poke. Ensures that only permitted information exchange takes place. Prevents gun jumping whereby control of the target is already obtained before clearance of the Dutch competent competition authority(ACM). Has extensive experience in submitting merger notifications so that this regulatory process runs as smoothly as possible. Controls whether the transaction must be reported to regulators outside the Netherlands or to the European Commission. And of course TREBLE ensures that the transaction documents are competition-proof and, for example, the non-compete clause is enforceable.
