  • Is this defense expected to become more used in M&A transactions during the months to come?
  • Are competition law concepts of "failing firm" and "enterprise valuation" in line with similar concepts in insolvency law?
  • Is competition law considering adequately the progressive sophistication of insolvency proceedings and the new restructuring and business sale instruments?
  • Should bankruptcy courts be granted merger control competences as part of their jurisdiction?
