A year of aggressive antitrust oversight

It is clear that the government is prepared to use litigation and pressure on transactions that it really doesn’t want to see happen and it has been more aggressive this year than in previous years,” said Steve Axinn, partner with the New York law firm of Axinn Veltrop & Harkrider LLP. “They will be just as aggressive and I believe they may be more aggressive in 2012.”
     How much government interference is warranted in day to day business.  I know we need rules and regulations but is it better to have a business fail or move to another country or is it better for a fair merger of said company before this happens.  Guess the lawyers will be busy next year anyway.......
