Large transactions, such as the Reverse Morris Trust transaction combining AT&T Inc.’s WarnerMedia business with Discovery are a specialty of the New York-based team at Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP who are experts in the M&A, securities, and financing aspects of media and entertainment. Practice head Ariel J. Deckelbaum is an expert in public and private M&A transactions, joint ventures, and restructuring deals who represented the Special Committee of the Board of Directors of CBS Corp in the merger with Viacom.
