Articles / December 7, 2016

Partner Carl Hittinger and Associate Tyson Herrold authored an article published Dec. 5, 2016, by The Legal Intelligencer. The article, “FTC Still Ramping Up Antitrust Review of Health Care Mergers,” discusses the FTC’s recent success in challenging local health care mergers that impact inherently local markets, but notes that the agency’s role in open to question under the emerging Trump administration.

Hittinger and Herrold write:
