Competition & Antitrust

We have substantial experience assisting companies with the global execution of competition and antitrust reviews, beginning from the earliest days of the firm when we assisted with the merger between Exxon and Mobil.

Since then, we have worked on a number of high-profile matters, crafting the umbrella strategy and working country-by-country to help resolve competition and regulatory issues that could impair the transaction.

Our M&A approach includes:

  • Mapping the stakeholders and taking soundings ahead of time
  • Helping to activate the contact plan
  • Coordinating with legal teams in each country to ensure the various competition reviews remain on track and in sync
  • Coordinating strategies and timing across key global markets
  • Trouble-shooting when challenges arise

Led by Nelson W. Cunningham, our M&A work is rooted in twenty years of broader experience managing government affairs on a global basis, always considering local nuances and audiences while ensuring consistency across messaging; advising corporate chairmen, boards, and CEOs; and crafting and executing transregional crisis communications strategies.



Our M&A work draws upon our strong regional capabilities in key markets, including:

  • European Union
  • China
  • India
  • Brazil
