Litigator of the Week Runners-Up and Shout Outs

Kirkland partners Stefan Atkinson and Anna Rotman and associates Zack Ewing and Mike Rusie received a shout out for The Am Law Litigation Daily’s “Litigator of the Week” contest for their work for Antin Infrastructure Partners. 

"... Shout out to Stefan Atkinson, Anna Rotman, Zack Ewing and Mike Rusie of Kirkland & Ellis. After a three-day trial last month, Delaware Chancellor Kathaleen McCormick this week allowed their client Antin Infrastructure Partners to walk away from a proposed merger with OpticalTel finding that OpticalTel breached its representations and warranties in the parties’ merger agreement. McCormick found that Antin’s termination of the deal was valid since an OpticalTel employee “came out of the woodwork” after the deal was announced claiming part ownership of an OpticalTel subsidiary, and OpticalTel did nothing to cure the breach."
