FTC Pharma Merger Digest May Offer Policy Clues

Law360 published an article jointly authored by Antitrust Co-chairs, Bruce Sokler and Joseph Miller, alongside Member Robert Kidwell examining the FTC's summary of the June 2022 joint workshop with the Antitrust Division of the US Justice Department titled "The Future of Pharmaceuticals: Examining the Analysis of Pharmaceutical Mergers."

The authors write, "The summary, released June 1, 2023, reads like a policy roadmap and memorializes discussions among enforcers and academics at the workshop regarding proposed changes to merger analysis in the pharmaceutical industry."
