The panelists have experience working for a number of merging entities to provide support including identification of potential targets, identification of antitrust concerns, procurement and preparation of client data for agency review, explanation of relevant data to agency economists and counsel, and preparation of advocacy analyses.

    Key topics include:
    ē An overview of the stages of merger investigations conducted by the DOJ and FTC
    ē A review of the trends in numbers of investigations
    ē Examples of assistance from economists at the following stages of merger investigations:
    o Pre-HSR filing
    o Preliminary review post-HSR filing
    o Second request
    o Advocacy Analyses
