We are pleased to announce that Cleary partner Ethan Klingsberg has been named “Dealmaker of the Year” by The American Lawyer today. The publication’s annual report spotlights “creative thinking, novel approaches and innovative work” on major transactions “where effective lawyering truly made the difference.”

Mr. Klingsberg was recognized for his leading role in Cleary’s representation of Family Dollar in its pending cash/stock acquisition by Dollar Tree and rejection of the competing tender offer by Dollar General.
