ArsLegem Assists Ukrainian Meat Producer with Merger Clearance

ArsLegem’s team under the lead of the firm's partner Oleksandr Petrov assisted a major Ukrainian meat producer in obtaining a number of clearances from Ukrainian competition authorities.

All three concentration permits related to past mergers in which the client had failed to duly receive a concentration clearance from authorities.

Applications were filed within the so called amnesty for mergers procedure announced by the Antimonopoly Committee of Ukraine (the AMCU). Consequently, the AMCU approved all three mergers post factum and issued a reasonable fine for the failure to duly receive the clearance on time.
