Kirkland & Ellis LLP’s employee benefits and executive compensation practice handles some of the largest M&A transactions in the oil and gas and energy sectors, with Alexandra Mihalas and Matthew Antinossi, both based in Chicago, and New York-based Scott Price frequently advising publicly-traded and private corporations on multibillion-dollar deals. Owing to the firm’s high-profile restructuring and bankruptcy practice, the team regularly advises on the benefit plan issues of corporate restructuring and liquidation processes. Michael Falk’s expertise encompasses equity, incentive and deferred compensation plan arrangements, particularly in respect to complex tax considerations under the 409A and 280G codes. A number of key financial institutions and REITs retain the team for ERISA fiduciary guidance on pension plan asset investment. Healthcare, life sciences and technology are also sectors of focus.
