Google C.E.O. Taps Quattrone as Adviser in Yahoo Battle - Mergers, Acquisitions, Venture Capital, Hedge Funds -- DealBook - New York Times

Somehow this seems unsurprising...

Frank P. Quattrone is advising Eric E. Schmidt, Google’s chief executive, as the Internet giant figures out its next step in the takeover struggle between Yahoo and Microsoft, people briefed on the matter told DealBook.

Mr. Quattrone’s role — his first high-profile transaction since being cleared of obstruction of justice charges last year — arrives as the drama surrounding Yahoo reaches a new level of complexity. Google and Yahoo announced Wednesday afternoon that they are testing out an advertising partnership, one that if successful may be used by Yahoo to demand a higher bid from Microsoft.
