The Daily Journal Names Alison Ressler and Eric Krautheimer to “Top 100 Lawyers” in California List

September 30, 2019

M&A partners Alison Ressler and Eric Krautheimer were named to the 2019 list of “Top 100 Lawyers” by the Daily Journal, which “celebrates California attorneys doing cutting-edge legal work.” Alison has been recognized on this list for over a decade, and the Daily Journal also recently named her one of its Top Women Lawyers. This is Eric’s third consecutive year being recognized on the list.

Alison is a leading authority on mergers and acquisitions, corporate governance and capital markets, whose 30-year career includes iconic deals. Her practice encompasses advice to global public companies, boards of directors and special committees, private equity investors and financial advisers, across industry sectors.  Alison’s leadership is not limited to the deal-table—as the first woman to join S&C’s management committee, she told Daily Journal that she feels “an obligation to be a great role model and to find opportunities for other women in leadership roles.”

For over 20 years, Eric Krautheimer has successfully represented many of the largest and most prominent corporations on a wide range of domestic and cross-border M&A transactions, including negotiated and hostile acquisitions of public companies, negotiated sales of private companies, subsidiaries and divisions, private equity transactions, leveraged buy-outs, formation of joint ventures and asset sales. Eric told Daily Journal that “the challenges in structuring an intricate deal are the best part of the job” for him.
