The calm before the storm? – Finnish merger control enforcement in 2021

D&I’s annual merger control report highlights the most recent trends and developments in Finnish merger control enforcement. In many ways, the year 2021 was not as exceptional as the preceding few years of Finnish merger control enforcement. For example, there were no proposals by the Finnish Competition and Consumer Authority (the “FCCA”) to prohibit a concentration (there was one in 2019 and one in 2020). Also, the FCCA did not declare a single notification incomplete or use ‘stop-the-clocks’. However, this does not mean that the Finnish merger control enforcement would have eased off. On the contrary, for example, the FCCA started to require an upfront buyer in divestment remedies and made significant new legislative proposals to tighten the merger control rules, which might mean that the year 2021 was merely a calm before the storm.
