Justice Department Sues to Block Aon's Acquisition of Willis Towers Watson
Antitrust Division, U.S. Department of JusticeLink to more items from this source
June 17, 2021

"The merger between Aon and Willis Towers Watson would combine two of the 'Big Three' insurance brokers who, as alleged in the complaint, can offer global service, sophisticated data and analytics, and a breadth and depth of knowledge and expertise that other brokers do not offer. As alleged in the complaint, Aon and Wills Towers Watson operate 'in an oligopoly' and 'will have even more [leverage] when [the] Willis deal is closed.' If permitted to merge, Aon and Willis Towers Watson could use their increased leverage to raise prices and reduce the quality of products relied on by thousands of American businesses -- and their customers, employees, and retirees." [U.S. v. Aon and Willis Towers Watson, No. 21-1633 (D.D.C. complaint filed Jun. 16, 2021)]
