Merger of Albertsons, Safeway & Vons

Medical Legal Experts, is proud to announce and welcome our new employee to the Company’s Medical Legal Division.   This employee has worked for VONS for 18 years in the Workers’ Compensation department in the Southern California Arcadia office.  Her experience with VONS Workers’ Compensation Department will be an asset as we continue to provide Medical Legal evaluations for Safeway. She will continue to utilize her relationships and claims adjusting skills to ensure quality control or medical reports and billing. 

In addition, she has gained valuable experience of the merger and acquisition of VONS, Albertsons and Safeway’s $9.4 billion sale, a deal that comes amid fierce competition for the combined supermarket chains.  We are excited to welcome her to the Medical Legal Expert family.

“A $9.4 billion merger deal in 2014 between Vons parent company Safeway and Cerberus Capital Management, which owns Albertsons, prompted the Federal Trade Commission to require the new company to shed some of its stores.

Altogether, Haggen and its parent company, the Florida-based Comvest Partners,bought 146 Albertsons and Vons supermarkets in the West, including 83 in California. But the shopping public balked and Haggen filed for bankruptcy last fall, selling off its expansion properties at auction. That enabled some Albertsons, Vons and Pavilions to re-emerge in the same locations from which they previously operated.”
