Law360 Names Cravath a 2019 "M&A Practice Group of the Year"

On January 13, 2020, Cravath was featured as one of Law360’s “M&A Practice Groups of the Year,” receiving the distinction for the eighth time in nine years. The Firm was recognized for its “leading role in many of 2019’s mega‑deals,” as well as its success over the past year in cultivating “a diverse deal flow.”

The article highlights Cravath’s role advising Occidental through “rollercoaster takeover efforts” in its $57 billion acquisition of Anadarko; the Firm’s representation of Mylan in its pending $50 billion combination with Upjohn, structured as a Reverse Morris Trust transaction; and the representation of the Board Committee of Viacom in an all‑stock merger with CBS, reuniting the two companies after more than a decade apart.

Cravath partners Thomas E. Dunn, George F. Schoen and Damien R. Zoubek are quoted in the feature. They each spoke on the unique complexities of the featured deals, and Damien highlighted the Firm’s “top‑to‑bottom strength” of its mergers and acquisitions group, also noting the “strength of the M&A platform as a whole.”
