Two Cahill Partners Named Law360's Ten "Rising Legal Stars under 40" to Watch in Corporate Finance
Portfolio Media's Law360 named Cahill partners Douglas S. Horowitz and William J. Miller as two of their ten "Rising Legal Stars Under 40 to Watch" in the nation for Corporate Finance. After reportedly receiving hundreds of nominations, the publication selected 10 Rising Stars under 40 years old in a variety of practice areas, "highlighting the achievements that catapulted them to the top of their profession at such a young age."
The publication profiled Horowitz, highlighting his work representing leading banks in the wake of the buyout boom in transactions including VNU, ARAMARK, Avaya, TXU, Biomet, U.S. Food Service, and his earlier work in the buyout of SunGard in 2005, a deal that represented the Cahill setting which reportedly gave Horowitz "a lot of experience and responsibility early on."
The publication profiled Miller, noting the diversity of his practice, including his participation in one headline grabbing transaction after another, including Clear Channel, the spin-offs of Ticketmaster, HSN and Interval Acquisition Corp and his representation of Elan in a strategic transaction that included an $885 million equity investment from Johnson & Johnson ("J&J"), and the acquisition by a newly formed J&J subsidiary of Elan's Alzheimer's Immunotherapy Program, which marked the first time J&J has made a minority investment in a public company and it was voted the "2009 M&A Deal of the Year" by The Pink Sheet Daily.
Cahill partner Adam Zurofsky was also named a "Rising Legal Star Under 40 to Watch" in the area of securities law.
