Partner Thomas W. Cohen was noted in the The National Law Journal article “Telecom Deals Put Lawyers to Work.” The article discusses Comcast Corp.'s pending $45 billion purchase of Time Warner Cable Inc. and AT&T Inc.'s $49 billion deal for DirecTV LLC, and how many competitors and public interest advocates are joining in the discussion. Some companies want to kill the mergers outright. Others want concessions that will give them a leg up. All want the ear of regulators at the Department of Justice and the FCC. Mr. Cohen is recognized as the American Cable Association’s counsel.
