Jointly led by Chicago-based partners William Kucera and Jodi Simala, the team at Mayer Brown is active in major strategic transactions and investments on behalf of financial institutions and corporates, such as Prologis and Nestlé. Indeed, New York corporate head David Carpenter has closed two transactions on behalf of long-standing client Nestlé in the past year. The firm has been especially active in the retail, insurance, energy, logistics, and chemicals industries, a broad sector spread owed in part to the firm’s nationwide platform, including offices in key financial centres including New York, Los Angeles, and Washington DC. Alongside its transactional work, the firm’s lawyers also maintain a profile in thought leadership with regard to M&A procedure and corporate governance.
