United States > M&A/corporate and commercial > M&A: large deals ($1bn+)

White & Case LLP leverages its broad US platform to handle an impressive array of M&A across a variety of sectors and jurisdictions, working in close collaboration with its global offices on complex cross-border deals. The firm is particularly strong in the tech, pharma, infrastructure, and energy sectors, and  combines a strong deal count with involvement in blockbuster transactions. Of particular note in the review period, Gregory Pryor acted for Saudi Aramco in its high-profile acquisition of SBIC. Another notable deal was new client Schneider Electric’s $2.1bn acquisition of Larsen & Toubro Electrical & Automation Division, led by standout new arrival Germaine Gurr, who has bolstered the firm’s expertise and client base since joining from Holland & Knight LLP in June 2020. Another area of growth for the team has been SPAC-related deals, where it acts in concert with the firm’s capital markets and private equity teams. The team is jointly led by John Reiss, a specialist in complex, multi-jurisdictional transactions on behalf of key clients such as Anthem and MobileMini, alongside Chang-Do Gong, who oversees Americas-based M&A and works across public and private deals. Michael Deyong enjoyed an active 2020, working for the likes of Flying Eagle Acquisition Corp, while Daniel Dufner was busy in the healthcare space. In Silicon Valley, Tali Sealman handled a number of tech and SPAC transactions, including dMY Technology Group II’s $1.5bn combination with Genius Sports Group. Named lawyers are in New York unless stated otherwise.
