The Deal Names Paul, Weiss Transaction Among M&A Deals of the Year

The Deal recognized Paul, Weiss in the magazine's annual roundup of the year's biggest M&A deals. The firm was singled out for its representation of Warner Music Group (WMG) in its acquisition by Access Industries for $3.3 billion. The article describes WMG's "cunning" decision to sell itself before rival EMI Group Ltd. went to market and notes that the auction process elicited "surprising demand for a music company" that contributed to the success of the transaction.

The Paul, Weiss team advising Warner Music included corporate partners Valerie Radwaner, Robert B. Schumer and Tarun M. Stewart; employee benefits partner Robert C. Fleder and counsel Maureen A. Riley; intellectual property partner Charles H. Googe Jr.; tax partner David R. Sicular and counsel Alyssa F. Wolpin.
