Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP’s diverse practice spans advisory work, pre-merger filings and second request investigations, as well as merger litigation. Moses Silverman and Aidan Synnott acted for Pace Plc in the DOJ’s investigation into the client’s proposed $2.1bn takeover by ARRIS, which was cleared in December 2015. In 2016, the sizable team was strengthened by the arrival in Washington DC of partners Charles Rule, Joseph Bial, Andrew Forman, Jonathan Kanter and a group of other lawyers from Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft LLP. Rule and Kanter are currently handling various antitrust matters for Monsanto arising from its $66bn takeover by Bayer, which recently included a regulatory review and a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing. Joseph Simons (Washington DC) and Jacqueline Rubin are other notable individuals. Unless otherwise stated, named attorneys are based in New York.
