Morgan, Lewis & Bockius LLP's extensive resources across the US and its increasingly expansive global presence, makes it a regular adviser on cross-border transactions. It has an especially strong record in US inbound deals. Moreover, its full-service approach – with the firm fielding eminent teams in intellectual property, employment, employee benefits and regulatory matters – makes it an even more compelling proposition to parties in M&A transactions. Life sciences, energy, technology, retail, financial services, healthcare and media are key sectors for the M&A team. It advised Dr Pepper Snapple Group on the completion of its merger with Keurig Green Mountain, the largest-ever deal in the global soft drink industry with the combined business being valued at some $40bn; the firm successfully saw off litigation brought in Delaware challenging the absence of appraisal rights pursuant to the deal structure. The firm also advised Aramark on its $1bn acquisition of AmeriPride Services, the uniform and linen rental and supply company. Philadelphia partner Richard Aldridge leads the team with Boston partner Laurie Cerveny operating as deputy head. New York's Charles Engros and Robert Dickey have extensive big-ticket M&A experience. New York partner Steven Navarro and Orange County's James Loss  are also recommended.
