Competition Legislation and Regulation to Watch In 2015
Jan.02.2015 — Law360
Washington, D.C.-based antitrust partner Shawn R. Johnson talks to Law360 about the potential passage of a bill to align the preliminary injunction standards for mergers at the U.S. Department of Justice and the Federal Trade Commission. "It got passed out of committee in the House, but had not been taken up in the Senate. But with the new Republican leadership, I think the likelihood of getting it passed out of the Senate is much higher," Johnson said. "Even in that situation it's quite unknown whether it would end up being passed and whether there's support in the White House."
