ALRUD Law Firm advised Danaher Corporation, an American manufacturer of professional medical, industrial and commercial equipment, on its $21.4 billion acquisition of General Electric’s Healthcare Life Sciences Biopharma Business (GE BioPharma).
Due to the parties' diversified biotechnology portfolios, the transaction could lead to significant overlaps in the relevant Russian medical equipment markets. To secure the clearance of the transaction by FAS Russia (Federal Antimonopoly Service), ALRUD Antitrust Team prepared a detailed analysis of the relevant Russian markets and proved the absence of any negative consequences for the state of competition in Russia. As a result, the transaction has been successfully cleared by the regulator with minimal remedies.
