CMA clears dental care merger

On 28 July 2014 the CMA cleared at phase I a merger between Oasis and Smiles, two dental chains operating practices across England, Wales and Northern Ireland.  RBB worked with Linklaters, counsel to the acquiring party, to produce extensive local geographic market analyses demonstrating that there was no prospect of a substantial lessening of competition in any part of the UK.The full decision is available on the CMA website.
