  • Representing a subsidiary of MEASAT Global Berhad in relation to the procurement and launch of a new satellite.
  • Represented TPG Global in its $2.365 billion acquisition of Wave Broadband in 2018 to create the sixth largest cable operator in the country.
  • Represented TPG Global in its acquisition from Oak Hill Capital Partners and GI Partners of two cable operators, RCN Telecom Services, LLC and Grande Communications Networks, LLC.
  • Represented Straight Path Communications, as it entered into a historic Consent Decree with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), in its merger with Verizon Communications Inc. The Consent Decree permitted Straight Path to retain its most high-value FCC licenses in the face of an FCC investigation into potential rule violations. As a result of the Consent Decree, Straight Path was able to enter into an agreement with Verizon for $3.1 billion in value.
  • Represented Cablevision Systems Corp. in the $17.7 billion sale of the company to Altice N.V.
  • Represented T-Mobile before the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in its acquisition of radio spectrum covering operations in Montana and Wyoming. The approval was predicated on securing a waiver of the FCC’s rules because the previous holder of the spectrum licenses failed to construct the station as required, which would have otherwise caused cancellation of the licenses subject to the transfer request. Against heavy opposition, the FCC approved the transaction and waiver request.
  • Represented Charter in its $67.1 billion acquisition of Time Warner Cable and Bright House Networks (in certain states).
  • Represented Cablevision (now Altice USA) in the $1.36 billion acquisition of Bresnan Communications and in the $1.625 billion sale of those systems to Charter.

  • Represented ATN International, Inc. in the $23.9 million sale of a portion of its US Wireline business to TVC Albany, Inc., an affiliate of Oak Hill Capital Partners.
