Aon-Willis would create 'harmful' broking behemoth, US DoJ sues to block merger

The US Department of Justice has sued to block the "harmful" merger of broking giants Aon and Willis Towers Watson (WTW) asserting that the deal would eliminate vital competition in the market, resulting in higher prices, and reducing innovation for US businesses. The brokers have criticised the legal action stating that it reflects the department's "lack of understanding".
