Slaughter and May advised Meta on its appeal against the German FCO's decision to 'Call-In' Meta’s acquisition of Kustomer

Slaughter and May, together with German counsel, advised Meta on its appeal to the Düsseldorf Higher Regional Court (the “Düsseldorf Court”) against the Federal Cartel Office’s (“FCO”) decision to claim jurisdiction over Meta’s acquisition of Kustomer in December 2021. On 23 November 2022, the Düsseldorf Court found that the FCO had erred in its jurisdictional assessment.

Slaughter and May coordinated Meta’s European merger control filings in respect of the Meta / Kustomer.
