In the webinar, our competition law and mergers & acquisitions experts cover foreign investment and merger control filings in the Baltics and the latest developments in the regulatory environment; zoom in on how merger control is maturing in the Baltics and whether it is causing any new headaches for transaction parties; and discuss if the Foreign Subsidies Regulation taking effect on 12 October 2023 is expected to have a major impact on M&A activity in the Baltics.
