Within: M&A litigation: defense

Shearman & Sterling LLP in New York is a prominent firm in the representation of financial institutions in deal-related litigation. It has a steady flow of post-closing cases, including representation of Daimler and its CEO in cases brought by former Chrysler executives claiming the company was liable for retirement benefits lost in Chrysler's bankruptcy following its divestiture from Daimler and subsequent sale to Cerberus. The US Supreme Court denied a petition for certiorari seeking review of the dismissal of the claims. The key partners are Alan Goudiss, Paula Anderson and K. Mallory Brennan, and clients describe Anderson as 'extremely helpful in working through the issues of a case and helping clients see the points objectively; her advice is measured, balance and timely'. Goudiss and Brennan acted for CVS in matters arising from its $69bn acquisition of Aetna. Global managing partner and head of litigation Adam Hakki, who defended a former CEO of Providence Service Corporation in shareholder derivative and class litigation in Delaware, is also recommended.
