Kimberly Petillo-Décossard Receives Emerging Leader Award from The M&A Advisor
Cahill Gordon & Reindel LLP is pleased to announce that Kimberly Petillo-Décossard, an M&A partner in the Firm’s corporate practice, was selected by The M&A Advisor to receive an Emerging Leader Award, which recognizes and celebrates the achievements of under-40 M&A, Financing and Turnaround professionals who have reached a significant level of success and made a notable contribution to their industry and community.
Kimberly has led more than forty M&A and financing transactions, totaling in excess of $20 billion since becoming a partner in 2014. The M&A deals she leads span an impressive variety of industries, but her growing reputation is simultaneously built on another type of versatility – her ability to also advise clients at various points in their lifecycle including financing, corporate governance, disclosure and compliance matters. Although such matters often require separate teams, Kimberly handles them all, proving herself to be exceedingly rare and exceptionally valuable.
Kimberly also earned the 2018 Rising Star Award from The New York Law Journal and has been recognized by both the IFLR1000 and The Legal 500. She also led two recent transactions that earned Deal of the Year honors at the eighth annual ACG New York Champion's Awards, which recognizes middle-market transactions, firms and dealmakers in the greater New York area.
Outside of Cahill, Kimberly serves on the Advisory Committee of New York-Presbyterian’s Sloane Hospital for Women and on the Leadership Advisory Committee of the National Women's Law Center (NWLC).
