“Nice Work If You Can Get It”

The Deal - September 11, 2009

SULLIVAN & CROMWELL LLP Chairman Rodge Cohen was quoted in The Deal magazine in the article, “Nice Work If You Can Get It.” The article noted changes affecting dealmaking in recent years, like new technologies and globalization, and trends such as building “in-house deal teams” and bundling services. He noted, “You have to understand the pressures people are under. Even in the depth of the most serious problems, there’s not been a sense of panic but a sense of realism. ...What you need to do is step back yourself, and try to avoid responding to the exigencies of the moment.”
