Principal William Myslinski and Vice President David Smith help clear Alfa Laval/Tranter Merger.

Alfa Laval and Tranter completed their merger after receiving clearance from the U.S. Department of Justice and the German Bundeskartelamt. Both companies manufacture gasketed plate heat exchangers, which are used in various manufacturing processes to dissipate heat. EI economists William C. Myslinski and David D. Smith worked with lawyers at Goodwin & Proctor LLP to defend the acquisition. They showed that after the merger, competition would be preserved by existing competitors, the ongoing expansion of fringe competitors, imports, and sales of other forms of heat transfer technology.
