Merger control

Within: Merger control

Goodwin’s merger control head Andrea Murino (Washington DC) has ‘brought the practice to the next level and put the firm on the map’. A hallmark of the team is its ‘strong agency experience’, which was evident in 2017 when Murino, Andrew Goodman (New York) and Kirby Lewis (Boston) assisted Concert Pharmaceuticals with the FTC’s second request investigation of the client’s agreement to sell cystic fibrosis drug CTP-656 to Vertex Pharmaceuticals. Todd Hahn (New York) is another recommended individual in the team, whose clients include SGL Carbon, Eventbrite and TA Associates.

Within: Technology: transactions

Goodwin has extensive experience structuring domestic and cross-border commercial transactions involving technology and IP assets. The practice’s scope of work includes standalone technology transfer transactions and other strategic technology transactions arising from private equity and venture capital investments, public offerings and private financing, as well as M&A deals, joint ventures and strategic alliances. The team acted for Trooly, a background-check start-up, in its sale to Airbnb; and assisted Sencha, which develops and licenses software frameworks and tools, with its sale to Idera. Equity capital market highlights included advising the underwriting syndicate on the $3.9bn IPO of camera company Snap, the creator of the Snapchat app; and acting for JP Morgan Securities, Goldman, Sachs & Co and Morgan Stanley & Co as lead book-running managers in the IPO of global hotel search platform trivago, which raised approximately $330m. John Egan, William Schnoor, Stuart Cable and Stephen Charkoudian are notable Boston contacts; and in Silicon Valley, Lawrence Chu, who leads the firm’s West Coast technology M&A practice, Michael Russell, Anthony McCusker and William Growney Jr are also highly rated. Andrew Goodman in New York and Jason Breen in Los Angeles are other names to note.
