EI team led by Principals Philip Nelson and Bill Hall helps clear Whirlpool acquisition of Maytag Corporation.

EI economists Philip Nelson, Bill Hall, Mike Baumann, John Gale, Sudip Gupta, Joel Papke, and Gloria Hurdle, assisted Maytag Corporation in obtaining approval of its merger with Whirlpool Corporation. EI worked closely with the law firms of Wachtell Lipton Rosen & Katz and Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton who represented Maytag and Howrey & Simon who represented Whirlpool. The transaction, which involved overlaps in a variety of household appliances, such as washing machines, was investigated by the DOJ. The DOJ’s approval of the acquisition was unconditional.
