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

On January 26, 2018, Cravath was featured as one of Law360’s “M&A Practice Groups of the Year,” a recognition of the significance, complexity and size of the M&A matters on which the Firm was involved over the course of the last year. The article highlights Cravath’s “banner year” and the “scope, scale and impact of its work for clients around the world.”

The profile notes the Firm’s role in high-profile transactions, including its representation of British American Tobacco plc in its $97 billion merger with Reynolds American Inc.; Time Warner Inc. in its pending $108.7 billion sale to AT&T; and Johnson & Johnson in its $30 billion all-cash acquisition of the Swiss company Actelion Ltd., the largest deal in Johnson & Johnson's 130-year history. Law360 said: “The string of transactions confirms Cravath, a firm that has long been considered a powerhouse in complex and high-stakes M&A, as a hallmark player in headline deals across diverse industries.”

Cravath partners Robert I. Townsend III and Mark I. Greene are quoted in the feature, which also highlights the Firm's ability to develop talent from within its associate ranks, and the “multi-generational talent within the partnership.”
