Winston & Strawn
“I think people often get consumed with “winning” a point and lose sight of the practical implications. You need to have a results-oriented and business minded approach to these deals.
“You must avoid overlooking the details. This might sound obvious, but given the time pressures we deal with, I often see things overlooked, and it’s certainly understandable. Some of these details are insignificant to the overall deal, but others are small in terms of their prominence within a document, but carry a potentially disproportionately large impact to the overall deal. It’s a lesson I preach to junior lawyers all of the time, but I see senior lawyers make this mistake quite often too.”
“I’ve always had an interest in aviation and as a young M&A lawyer I was involved with AMR’s acquisition of TWA. I did a lot of M&A work for GE and a few years after the AMR deal, a number of large US carriers started filing for bankruptcy and I began representing GE, which was often the largest creditor of these airlines. Having gotten my start during an industry down cycle, I really appreciate the good times, but am keenly aware of how things can come apart quickly in this industry.”
