Antitrust Advisors Crowell & Moring’s antitrust group has been continuously ranked among the top in the world by Global Competition Review and handles a variety of related work, including civil litigation and investigations; mergers and acquisitions; grand jury investigations and trials; and risk management. Some of the firm’s notable cases have included several multibillion dollar transactions in the telecommunications industry, such as serving as an antitrust counsel for AT&T in its $39 billion acquisition of T-Mobile; representing AT&T in its $86 billion acquisition of BellSouth; advising SBC/Cingular Wireless in its $41 billion acquisition of AT&T Wireless; and counseling SBC in its $16 billion acquisition of AT&T Corp.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
