Scott Barshay and Andrew Krause Featured in Vault Q&A on Paul, Weiss’s M&A Practice

June 22, 2023

Corporate partners Scott Barshay and Andrew Krause were featured in a Q&A on Paul, Weiss’s M&A practice in the 2023 edition of “Practice Perspectives: Vault’s Guide to Legal Practice Areas.” In the Q&A, Scott and Andrew discuss what drew them to M&A, what a typical day is like and some misconceptions about the practice area.

“One misconception is that you have to have a certain type of personality, background and negotiation style to be a successful M&A lawyer. Nothing could be further from the truth,” Scott says. “At Paul, Weiss, we believe [that] diversity of thought, background and experience is not only incredibly valuable, but essential to innovative lawyering and problem solving.”

Scott and Andrew also share insights into the summer associate experience at Paul, Weiss and unique aspects of practicing M&A at the firm, among other topics.

“Our M&A lawyers are counsel to some of the world’s biggest, most sophisticated public and private equity clients,” says Andrew. “The transactions we work on are high profile and absolutely cutting edge. Something particularly unique is that Paul, Weiss has incredible strength in both public company and private equity M&A. This gives associates opportunities to work and learn skill sets across both of these areas.”

Vault’s “Practice Perspectives,” which was released this month, offers insights from lawyers at top-ranked law firms on practicing law in more than 20 different practice areas.
