Acquisition of Vivendi Universal Entertainment
Our attorneys represented General Electric, and its subsidiary NBC, in connection with the US, EU, and a number of individual country antitrust reviews of the acquisition of Vivendi's Universal Entertainment business. The transaction brought together a major US television network, seven cable television channels, motion picture and television production studios, and several theme parks. The transaction created one of the world's largest media and entertainment companies. The FTC and EU cleared the transaction unconditionally.
