Partners Charles (Rick) Rule and Deborah Garza noted for antitrust representation of MGM Mirage Inc. in its acquisition of Mandalay Resort Group Inc., The Daily Deal, "MGM Sure of Mandalay Funding"

In its article entitled "MGM Sure of Mandalay Funding," The June 17th Daily Deal noted that "MGM Mirage Inc. is confident it can fund its $7.9 billion purchase of Mandalay Resort Group without losing its shirt in Las Vegas....MGM will pay Mandalay shareholders and holders of its convertible debentures $5.4 billion, or $71 per share in cash. It will also assume $2.5 billion in debt....MGM Mirage also employed Charles "Rick" Rule and Deborah Garza, both formerly part of the Department of Justice and now partners at Fried, Frank, Harris, Shriver & Jacobson LLP, to advise on antitrust matters involved in the deal. Antitrust issues could figure prominently in MGM's timetable for closing the deal. The deal would give MGM control of half of the Las Vegas strip, as well as a combined 2.6 million square feet of convention space."
