Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati is pleased to present its 2020 Antitrust Year in Review, which provides a summary of the most significant antitrust matters and developments of the past year.
The report examines the final year of antitrust enforcement under the Trump administration and analyzes actions by both U.S. antitrust agencies and enforcers in other jurisdictions around the world across a range of merger review, civil conduct, and criminal enforcement matters. We also highlight new guidance issued by U.S. agencies this year, developments in the treatment of efficiencies in merger analysis, and the growing importance of the UK Competition and Markets Authority in merger clearance. In addition, we note continued areas of cooperation and contention between U.S. agencies and discuss the priorities of both U.S. enforcers and non-U.S. enforcers. Finally, we examine the Department of Justice’s enforcement agenda and leniency program, describe recent actions in other jurisdictions, and offer an update on private antitrust litigation, with particular emphasis on developments in pharmaceutical cases and the increasingly critical class certification process.
