EI Principal John R. Morris Assisted Exelon Corporation in Acquiring Constellation Energy.

EI Principal John R. Morris led a team that assisted Exelon Corporation in obtaining approvals to acquire Constellation Energy.  Exelon owns electric utilities in Chicago and Philadelphia and Constellation Energy owns Baltimore Gas & Electric.  The parties and the U.S. Department of Justice agreed to the divestiture of the Brandon Shores, Crane, and Wagner plants.  The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission and the Maryland Public Service Commission approved the merger with the proposed divestitures and additional conditions accepted by the merging parties.  EI worked closely with Skadden, Arps, Meagher & Flom and Saul Ewing on the matter.
