The firm also acted on significant deals for Northrop Grumman and Time Warner. On the lender side it acted for JP Morgan in relation to $12bn of credit facilities provided to Dow DuPont linked to its separation into three companies and the spin-off of Corteva. Michael Goldman leads the team, which also includes corporate managing partner George Zobitz, Tatiana Lapushchik, Joseph Zavaglia, and Stephen Kessing.
