Merger control

Within: Merger control

White & Case LLP delivers results in accordance with the expectations of global clients in US second request investigations, multi-jurisdictional merger reviews and merger litigation. The US merger control practice is anchored by George Paul and Rebecca Farrington, who worked alongside Mark Gidley, Christopher Curran and others to advise Anthem on the DOJ’s and plaintiff states’ lawsuit challenging the client’s proposed $54.2bn acquisition of Cigna. Farrington, Robert Milne in New York and counsel Anna Kertesz assisted Vertex Pharmaceuticals with obtaining FTC clearance (without remedies, following the issue of a second request) for its circa $250m acquisition of cystic fibrosis drug CTP-656 from Concert Pharmaceuticals. The firm has also acted for clients such as Calpine Corporation, Aramco Services Company and Sempra Energy. John Donaldson and counsel Douglas Jasinski are recommended.
