Who's Who Legal Corporate: Merger & Acquisition

Greg is head of White & Case's Americas mergers and acquisitions, and corporate practice.

Greg represents corporations, their stakeholders and private equity funds in a wide range of complex domestic and cross-border mergers, acquisitions, divestitures, joint ventures and leveraged buyouts.

Such major deals include Sempra Energy, an electric and gas utility company, in its US$18.8 billion acquisition of Energy Future Holdings Corp; NeuroDerm Ltd, a Nasdaq-listed clinical stage pharmaceutical company developing drug-device combinations for central nervous system (CNS) disorders, in its US$1.1 billion sale to Mitsubishi Tanabe Pharma Corporation; Saudi Refining, Inc (SRI), a wholly owned subsidiary of Saudi Arabian Oil Company (Saudi Aramco), in the discontinuation of Motiva Enterprises LLC and the division of Motiva's assets, liabilities and businesses between SRI and affiliates of its joint venture partner, Royal Dutch Shell PLC; and Qingdao Haier, a company that is 41 per cent owned by the leading Chinese home appliance manufacturer Haier Group Corp, in its US$5.4 billion acquisition of GE's appliance business, through an auction process. The transaction was named "Cross-border M&A Deal of the Year" by The M&A Advisor 2017.

Clients benefit from his extensive experience in the corporate aspects of in-court and out-of-court restructurings. His clients span a range of industries including power and energy, industrials, pharmaceuticals, oil & gas, financial and consumer products, among others.

Greg received his JD from New York University School of Law in 1988. He also received his BA (magna cum laude) from New York University in 1985.

Greg is recognised in the fields of M&A and corporate governance by many highly respected professional publications, including Euromoney (2017), The Legal 500 USA (2016 and 2017 editions) and Lawdragon (2015). Greg was the recipient of an “M&A Legal Advisor of the Year” award by The M&A Advisor (2016).
