Cadwalader Expands Tax Group with Addition of Partner Andrew Carlon in New York

January 09, 2023

Cadwalader today announced that Andrew Carlon has joined the firm’s Tax Group as a partner in New York.

Carlon’s practice focuses on assisting clients with the tax aspects of mergers and acquisitions and other corporate transactions. He regularly advises on private company acquisitions and dispositions, joint ventures, taxable and tax-free public company transactions, cross-border restructurings, and spin-offs, including pro rata spin-offs, split-offs, Morris Trust spin-merge transactions and IPO-spin combinations.

Carlon joins Cadwalader from Cravath, Swaine & Moore, where he was a senior attorney.

“We are delighted to welcome Andrew to the firm,” said Cadwalader managing partner Pat Quinn. “We continue to grow our Corporate Group and, in particular, our M&A capabilities, and Andrew brings considerable experience advising on the tax aspects of major U.S. and global transactions.”

Added Linda Swartz, Cadwalader’s Tax Group chair: “Andrew brings deep experience on the M&A side, as well as broader capabilities that complement our other firm offerings. He is a great fit for our Tax Group and for our firm.”

In addition to his M&A work, Carlon also routinely advises on both public debt and equity offerings (representing both underwriters and issuers) and syndicated lending transactions (representing both banks and borrowers).

“Cadwalader has such a well-known and well-respected Tax Group,” Carlon said, “along with a first-rate M&A group that works with a very impressive client list. I look forward to working with them and providing guidance and support on upcoming transactions.”

Carlon’s arrival comes on the heels of two important recent additions in London: ESG finance and investment partner Sukhvir Basran and financial regulation partner Alix Prentice. Across the firm, in the last 18 months, Cadwalader has also added partners Kenneth Breen and Phara Guberman (White Collar Defense), Angela Batterson (Finance), Jon Brose (Tax), Kiran Kadekar (Corporate), Helen Maher (Global Litigation) and Mike Rupe (Financial Restructuring) in New York; Matthew Smith (Private Credit) and Bevis Metcalfe (Financial Restructuring) in London; and Michael Bergmann (Corporate), Peter Malyshev (Financial Services) and Mercedes Tunstall (Financial Services) in Washington, D.C.
