Event summary

In U.S. v. AT&T-Time Warner, Judge Leon held that the DOJ had not met its burden to prove that the merger of AT&T and Time Warner would substantially lessen competition. The highly anticipated decision, which paved the way for AT&T and Time Warner to close their $85.4 billion merger, is attracting attention as a rare look into how courts will assess vertical mergers and related economic evidence.

In this briefing, you will hear from Cooley partner Howard Morse and associate Megan Browdie, who will discuss the implications of the decision for future antitrust merger enforcement, including:

  • Key aspects of the 172-page decision
  • Implications for vertical, as well as horizontal, merger enforcement
  • What it means for behavioral remedies
  • Implications for the DOJ's enforcement agenda

This program is intended for in-house counsel, outside attorneys, board members, corporate officers and other professionals responsible for strategic M&A and drafting and reviewing M&A documents.
