Marin BoneyKirkland & Ellis LLP

Kirkland & Ellis LLP is heavily active in merger clearances, successfully securing approvals for its highly acquisitive corporate and private equity clients, including such major funds as Blackstone, KKR, and Bain Capital, handling a large proportion of HSR filings alongside more contentious merger proceedings such as Second Requests and DOJ investigations. Alongside its strong domestic presence, the firm also regularly handles cross-border clearances, appearing before the European Commission and other global enforcers, and collaborating with its international offices on complex multijurisdictional matters. Key names in the team include the vastly experienced Matthew Reilly, a fixture in FTC and DOJ merger proceedings on behalf of a wide range of blue-chip clients and New York-based Ian John, who notably represented Ahold Delhaize in the clearance of its acquisition of Fresh Direct. Marin Boney has strong expertise in the software and technology space, handling approvals and investigations for M&A and joint ventures. The team expanded significantly during 2021, with Andrea Agathoklis Murino and Matthew Wheatley arriving from Goodwin in January and March respectively, Jill Ross joining the New York office from Dechert LLP in May, and media and entertainment specialist Scott Scheele arriving from the Antitrust Division in December. Lawyers are in Washington DC unless otherwise stated.
