Merger control

Within: Merger control

Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP’s team is ‘at the high end of the scale for knowledge, expertise and experience’ when it comes to high-stakes merger control matters. Key figures include Jonathan Kanter, who is ‘available around the clock’, and New York-based Aidan Synnott, who delivers ‘level-headed, thoughtful and practical advice’. Synnott heads the practice with Kenneth Gallo, Charles Rule and Joseph Simons. In 2017, a team including Scott Barshay in New York and Andrew Forman acted as corporate and antitrust counsel to Ariad Pharmaceuticals in its $5.2bn sale to Takeda Pharmaceutical. On the merger litigation front, Joseph Bial, counsel Daniel Howley and others represented Cigna in a lawsuit brought by the DOJ and several states seeking to block the client’s proposed $54bn headline merger with Anthem. The team has also acted for clients such as Kate Spade & Company, Virtu Financial and Eli Lilly. Named individuals are based in Washington DC, except where otherwise stated.
