Shaheen & Gordon, P.A.
Attorney Arpiar Saunders and
Attorney Mike McLaughlin of the Shaheen & Gordon Group, L.L.C. (the firm’s
government relations company) represented the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, Local
2320 (IBEW 2320) during the sale of Verizon’s land lines to FairPoint
The original sale price was set at 2.7 billion dollars, the largest utility
matter to come before the Public Utilities Commission in 30 years.
Through the efforts of the IBEW 2320, with guidance and advice from Attorneys
Saunders and McLaughlin, the sale price was reduced some $350 million
dollars, helping insure better wages and benefits for the workers and
increasing the likelihood of success of the transaction.
