Abstract

In the past five years, each of the BRIC countries has revised its merger control policies and practice, changing the conditions for competing in these markets. In this article, we provide an overview of the review process and timelines that need to be respected or expected to get the deal through in the BRIC countries as well as the EU and the US. We outline the similarities and differences among the countries and visualize the process with a high-level time line for each.

Keywords: Merger Control, BRIC, M & A Activity, Review Process, Review Timelines
