2023 Innovation Economics Conference for Antitrust Lawyers


Gregor Langus discussed mergers and innovation at this annual conference in London.

Dr. Langus joined a panel of attorneys and European policymakers to discuss “Mergers and Innovation Issues” at this annual in-person event.

The panel focused on merger control in innovation, innovation issues, recent cases, and potential remedies. Key topics included:

  • The role of research and development (R&D) in shaping innovation, future product markets, and consumer surplus
  • Uncertainties—such as consumer sensitivities to price, quality improvement, and the introduction of new products—raised by innovation and their impact on competition
  • The importance of merger control in innovative markets
  • Dealing with uncertainty in merger reviews, particularly the potential output of innovation efforts
  • Challenges arising from structural and behavioral remedies, and the effects of those remedies on competitive markets
