Principal William P. Hall helps clear $1.5 billion gaming industry merger at the FTC.

William Hall served as the economic expert for attorneys from Latham & Watkins and Swidler Berlin Shereff & Friedman as they persuaded the FTC to close its heavily data-intensive investigation of Harrah’s purchase of Horseshoe’s three casinos. Assisted by Senior Vice President Paul Godek and Senior Economist Joel Papke, Hall explained why the acquisition would not permit Harrah’s to reduce competition in the FTC’s geographic area of concern.
