In a deal that has transformed the global auto industry, Vice Chair Scott Miller led an S&C team advising Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) in its $60 billion merger with Peugeot S.A. The transaction—which created Stellantis, the fourth-largest automaker in the world—has earned Scott his second recognition in The American Lawyer’s annual Dealmaker of the Year feature.
 
Scott worked closely with long-time client FCA to craft a merger-of-equals that withstood the difficulties created by the COVID-19 pandemic and the ensuing market fluctuations. This “measured approach” helped FCA weather these unprecedented events and close the deal ahead of schedule in January 2021.
 
“The willingness to be patient actually created or preserved the ability to maintain a transaction that was really beneficial for all parties,” Scott told The American Lawyer. Click here to read Scott’s Dealmaker profile.
 
S&C lawyers have received this prestigious recognition 23 times in as many years.
