Gus Hurwitz on Pre-Merger Notification

ICLE Director of Law & Economics Programs Gus Hurwitz was cited by Regulation in a piece about the Federal Trade Commission’s proposed changes to the Hart–Scott–Rodino premerger notification and report form. You can read the full piece here.

These terms are best read together, according to Justin Hurwitz of the International Center for Law and Economics and the University of Pennsylvania’s Carey Law School. In a Regulatory Review article last year, he wrote, “Given that all necessary information could be acquired through a second request, ‘appropriateness’ is a question of whether ‘necessary’ information should be requested of all transactions subject to premerger notification or only of those subject to second requests.”
