Venable of counsel Robert Davis was quoted in January 31, 2013 Reuters article on the federal government’s lawsuit to stop the merger of beer companies Anheuser-Busch and Grupo Modelo. The government fears the $20.1 billion merger could mean higher beer prices across the country.

“This is a very well drafted complaint with quotes from what appear to be very damaging documents along with solid market share data,” said Davis commenting on the government’s complaint. “If the division is able to prove what they say they can, then this looks like a very hard case for the parties to win.”
