The team at Winston & Strawn LLP has ‘detailed technical knowledge of its practice area and is able to explain difficult, technical issues in an easy-to-understand way’. The practice group is experienced in M&A transactions, financings and joint venture arrangements involving both foreign and domestic entities, and also handles tax planning and SALT matters. Edmund CohenDeborah Goldstein and Rachel Ingwer ‘go way beyond advising on the law - they think creatively to find appropriate solutions for complex issues’; the team advised the Medallion Fund and other investment funds managed by client Renaissance Technologies on corporate tax matters. Clients also praise the ‘strong’executive compensation team, which has been ‘extremely helpful with the adaptation to recent legislative changes’. Other highlights for the office include tax structuring on behalf of the Nicolas Berggruen Charitable Trust in relation to the establishment of the Berggruen Institute, and also acting for Federal Mogul, a subsidiary of Icon enterprise, in its cash-and-stock sale to Tenneco for approximately $5.4bn. Chicago lawyers Dennis Kelly and Louis Weber are ‘very solutions-oriented and will always analyse matters from all angles to find the right solution’.
