Mergers & Acquisitions

Mergers & Acquisitions magazine selected Skadden "Law Firm of the Year" in its May 2009 issue. The publication highlighted the firm's role in several high-profile engagements, including Mars-Wrigley, DRS Technologies-Finmeccanica and Yahoo-Microsoft. "It's Skadden's desire to take on the hard cases that helped distinguish the firm last year," the magazine reported, noting that, Skadden "seemed to be everywhere in the deal market in 2008."
