On January 10, 2020, the FTC and DOJ issued draft vertical merger guidelines. While many agree that the 1984 Non-Horizontal Merger Guidelines are outdated and long overdue to be rescinded, the issuance of the current draft guidelines is not without controversy. Although both FTC Commissioners Rebecca Kelly Slaughter and Rohit Chopra agree that the 1984 guidelines are outdated, they each take issue with the latest guidelines as proposed. This webinar will discuss the pros and cons of the draft guidelines from a legal and economic perspective, and provide insight into how application of the guidelines, once finalized, will impact the health care sector.
