London partner Matthew Hall co-hosted the September 18 episode of the ABA’s Our Curious Amalgam podcast on the topic “No More Clouds on the Horizon? The UK CMA’s Investigation Into Microsoft’s Acquisition of Activision Blizzard.”
Hall joins program guests to discuss Microsoft’s proposed acquisition of Activision Blizzard being controversially blocked in its original form by the UK Competition and Markets Authority. What was the CMA’s rationale and how has the investigation played out since then? Guests discuss the UK element of the worldwide merger control investigation into this case.
Our Curious Amalgam explores topics in antitrust, competition, consumer protection, data protection, and privacy law around the world with leading experts in those areas. It is an amalgam because it is a group of diverse topics all in one place. It is curious because it gets the experts and asks them in-depth questions.
