Orrick Recognized for Advising Alstom in $13.5 Sale of Energy Businesses to GE


The $13.5 billion acquisition of Alstom’s energy businesses by General Electric was awarded M&A Deal of the Year at the 2016 IFLR European Awards. An Orrick team in Paris, led by Jean-Pierre Martel and including Etienne Boursican, advised Alstom’s board in the transaction. 
This is the second award the deal has won. Orrick was also recognized in the Financial Times’ 2015 Innovative Lawyers Report Europe for the innovative lawyering on the transaction.
