Skadden Arps in $3.2 billion cellular deal

New York firm Skadden Arps Slate Meagher & Flom is advising Chicago-based telecoms group Ameritech, on the disposal of its cellular business to GTE.

The merger has yet to be approved by the Federal Communications Commission, but will not be affected by GTE’s merger with Bell Atlantic.
