‘The Tata/ Thyssenkrupp prohibition and merger enforcement in basic industries’

The very recent prohibition of the Tata Steel / Thyssenkrupp JV was the last of a number of cases in European basic industries where the Commission intervened. These mergers raised diverse issues, such as share computation, value chain integration, imports and trade measures, as well as how to design a workable structural remedy. Daniele will discuss the recent prohibition and lessons learnt from those other recent merger cases.

He previously worked on the drafting and negotiation of the 2014 antitrust damages directive.
