This a collection of important U.S. federal antitrust merger remedies since 2000. For anyone trying to understand the U.S. approach to merger remedies, the guidance documents issued by the U.S. federal antitrust enforcement agencies, the Antitrust Division of the United States are the right starting point. The Agencies, however, have recently called their own prior policies into question.
