Law360 Names Cleary Gottlieb M&A Group Of The Year

January 4, 2016

Cleary Gottlieb’s Mergers and Acquisitions group was selected by Law360 as one of its Practice Groups of the Year, citing the record-breaking $160 billion merger agreement with Allergan PLC and Pfizer Inc. as “the sort of high-profile transaction that Cleary Gottlieb thrives on.”

Cleary partner Ethan Klingsberg told the publication, “There’s a huge amount of trust that you have to have with clients when you’re doing things in M&A. They need to trust you on a broad spectrum of due diligence, on execution issues, timing issues.”

In its profile of Cleary’s M&A group, Law360 points out that “lawyers within the international firm’s 16 offices work collaboratively to provide the indispensable guidance their M&A clients have come to count on.”

Cleary also earned Practice Group of the Year recognition for BankingCapital Markets and Competition.
