Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory U.S. said today it is enhancing its Kluwer Competition Law resource with the addition of the Merger Thresholds Monitor, a knowledge management platform maintained by Granville Knowledge Management that provides up-to-date merger control thresholds, procedural information, exchange rates, interpretation and guidance for 135 jurisdictions worldwide.

Merger thresholds are the dollar values that determine which mergers and acquisitions must be reported to government regulators before consummation. Keeping track of them can be labor-intensive and require research across multiple resources.

Granville KM maintains the Merger Thresholds Monitor, which it sells as a subscription product, regularly updating and verifying its information.

Granville KM says it is the only such source of dynamically updated and actively edited merger control information available to competition lawyers.

Wolters Kluwer says the addition of this data to Kluwer Competition Law, its resource for EU, national and international competition law research, will save practitioners time and resources and help drive increased client service delivery.

“Tracking and following merger thresholds is a labor intensive but vital component of antitrust and competition law practitioners’ work, and we are pleased to offer a next-generation solution that will greatly improve the speed and accuracy of this workflow,” said David Bartolone, Vice President and General Manager for the International Group, Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory U.S.
