Monitoring Trustee Services
Throughout the world, competition authorities such as the Federal Trade Commission, the Department of Justice and the European Commission accept remedies offered by merging firms, such as a divestiture, to resolve competition concerns arising from transactions.
In this situation, the competition authority may require the appointment of a monitoring trustee (also known as merger trustee or interim monitor) to oversee the implementation of the remedies and report to the competition authority.
