Cahill’s representation of ICON plc in its agreement to acquire PRA Health Sciences, Inc. for approximately $12 billion, is in Law360’s report on the largest M&A deals from Q1 2021. The transaction has been unanimously approved by both Boards of Directors and is anticipated to close during quarter three of 2021, subject to regulatory and shareholder approvals and customary closing conditions.

Law360 reports that “mergers and acquisitions activity remained strong during the first three months of the year, and the largest transactions from 2021's opening quarter illustrate a dealmaking market focused on technology and health care because of the COVID-19 pandemic.”
