Crowell & Moring LLP Antitrust Group counsel Shawn R. Johnson is featured for his comments on antitrust concerns in joint ventures. According to Johnson, “The antitrust concerns become far more complicated in a joint venture than they do in a straight acquisitionthe most significant difference is that there are not only transaction and formational issues, but then there are operational issues. That adds just one more layer of questions for antitrust officials at the Federal Trade Commission and the U.S. Department of Justice to sift through.”
