McDermott Will & Emery has been named among the winners of the 7th Annual M&A Emerging Leaders Awards announced on April 6. The awards will be presented at a black-tie gala on June 10, 2016 at the New York Athletic Club.
Partners Michael Sartor and Raam Jani of the Firm's Corporate Practice were honored with two Emerging Leader Awards.
Mr. Sartor, based in McDermott’s Boston office, is primarily focused on representing private equity sponsors as well as public and private companies in connection with mergers and acquisitions. Mr. Jani, of the Chicago office, focuses his practice on the areas of mergers and acquisitions and private equity/emerging companies.
“The Annual M&A Advisor Emerging Leaders Awards was born as the 40 Under 40 Awards in the United States in 2010 to recognize and celebrate the achievements of young M&A, Financing and Turnaround professionals who had reached a significant level of success and made a notable contribution to their industry and community. With the expansion of the Emerging Leaders program to the United Kingdom, and Europe earlier this year, the 2016 US award winners join a truly global network of young leaders,” said David Fergusson, President and Co-CEO of The M&A Advisor.
Evaluation and selection of the nominees was completed by an independent judging panel.
