Partner Don Barnes quoted in dealReporter article on potential antitrust review of Viterra deal

Don Barnes, Partner and Chair of the Firm's Antitrust & Trade Regulation practice group, was quoted in the dealReporter article "Viterra deal would face cumbersome antitrust review, industry sources say."


The article covers the potential sale of Viterra to several potential buyers, and the possible antitrust concerns that may catch the eye of the Department of Justice.   Barnes comments on why the DOJ has been active in this particular industry and its two recent attempts to block other acquisitions in the agriculture sector.
