Jones Day acted as antitrust counsel to EDF Invest on the merger control/antitrust aspects of its acquisition (together with the Caisse des Dépôts et Consignations (CDC) and the Caisse Nationale de Prévoyance (CNP)) of 50% of the capital and voting rights of Orange Concessions which is active in the roll out of fiber in France in less densely populated areas.
