United States > M&A/corporate and commercial > M&A: large deals ($1bn+)

Jones Day‘s national and international coverage is virtually unrivalled and this continues to enable it to maintain and build an enviably broad and illustrious client base. The firm is often praised not only for its geographic coverage, but also its breadth of expertise with other strong departments including intellectual property, labor law and government regulatory teams having a key role on many big transactions. Clients include Marathon Petroleum, Procter & Gamble and Conagra Brands. While being a considerable force in global M&A by volume, it also ranks highly by value of deals with it now frequently earning roles on headline and high-value transactions. This is in part enabled by the presence of eminent practitioners in New York, such as global M&A practice chair Robert Profusek and global M&A leader Randi Lesnick. Cleveland’s Lyle Ganske and James Dougherty are also key leaders of the M&A group. Ganske and Dougherty worked alongside fellow Cleveland partner Benjamin Stulberg to advise Marathon Petroleum on its $23.3bn acquisition of Andeavor to create a leading US refining, marketing, and midstream company. The firm also advised Conagra Brands on its $10.9bn acquisition of Pinnacle Foods. Palo Alto partner Daniel Mitz is recommended for technology deals and advised Oclaro on its $1.8bn acquisition by Lumentum Holdings.
