Hogan Lovells advises Arris on $2bn purchase of Google’s Motorola Home unit

Hogan Lovells has secured antitrust clearance from the US Department of Justice for client Arris’s proposed $2.35bn purchase of Google Inc’s Motorola Home unit.

With this final approval, the communications technology company has received all of the necessary regulatory authorisations surrounding the purchase. The acquisition is expected to close later this week.

Arris expects to gain close to 1,000 patents covering, among other things, technology used in video processing and video rights management.

The Hogan Lovells team was led by Washington DC partner Logan Breed and included associates Chris Rowan, Meghan Edwards-Ford, Christine Habeeb, Joby Ryan, Charlie Dickinson, Robert Baldwin, Wes Carson, Tracy Januzzi and Lauren Battaglia.
