We advise on a full range of merger and acquisition transactions in both friendly and hostile matters in a wide variety of industries where our clients need the highest quality skills and experience in large and complex negotiations. We are often asked by boards of directors and special committees to help them navigate complex transactions and conflicts of interest. During the past five years, Cravath has represented companies in merger and acquisition transactions with an aggregate value of over a trillion dollars. Our record in representing clients making hostile bids and defending against takeover attempts is a testimony to the strength and depth of our Corporate and Litigation Departments. Both domestic and foreign clients rely on our skills and experience in the most complex transactions, many of which involve multiple jurisdictions.
