Big Changes Coming With Biden Administration's M&A Review

Publisher: Connecticut Law Tribune
January 20, 2022

Judge Christopher F. Droney (ret.) and Matthew Austin's Connecticut Law Tribune Expert Opinion column, "2022 Brings New Priorities in Civil and Criminal Enforcement for U.S. Justice Department," was quoted in a feature article by the same publication, titled, "Big Changes Coming with Biden Administration's M&A Review."

Droney and Austin commented, "There is little reason to expect that the federal inaction against Big Tech will continue more generally, however. For example, a coalition of state attorneys general has recently announced investigations of Facebook parent Meta Platforms (which is also the target of an ongoing FTC antitrust lawsuit initiated under the prior administration), which will undoubtedly increase the governmental scrutiny it has been subject to since a series of whistleblower charges surfaced in September 2021."
