Client receives 'No Notification Required Certificate' from Saudi Arabia's General Authority for Competition

Clients Client

Jones Day advised a client in the formation of a joint venture to operate a greenfield concession in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The project was submitted to the Kingdom's General Authority of Competition who ultimately agreed with Jones Day's analysis that the project was not subject to the authority's merger control jurisdiction. A legal analysis under the authority's recently issued guidelines and comparative jurisdictions was presented to the authority.
