Cadwalader today announced that David B. Teigman has joined the firm as a partner in the firm’s Corporate Group in New York.

Teigman's practice focuses on executive compensation and employee benefits matters related to M&A, securities offerings and senior executive employment relationships. He joins the firm from Cravath, Swaine & Moore LLP, where he was a Senior Attorney in the Executive Compensation and Benefits Department.    

“David brings to our firm first-rate technical skills and an outstanding reputation for client service,” said Cadwalader managing partner Pat Quinn. “We know he will be well received by our clients.”

William Mills, co-leader of the firm’s Corporate Group, said, “David has more than 10 years of experience advising clients on compensation and benefits aspects of some of their most important transactions.”

Added Richard Brand, co-leader of Cadwalader’s Corporate Group, “We look forward to David bringing to our clients his outstanding legal skills and an ability to provide all-important strategic counsel at the highest level of client organizations."

Teigman has been actively involved in a number of significant M&A and corporate transactions, including Time Warner’s pending $108.7 billion acquisition by AT&T, the pending sale of Yahoo’s operating business to Verizon for $4.3 billion, KION Group’s $2.1 billion acquisition of Dematic and The Fresh Market’s $1.36 billion acquisition by affiliates of Apollo.

“Cadwalader is highly regarded and very well positioned for increased M&A work,” Teigman said, “and I look forward to supporting my new clients and my new partners in these important transactions.” 

Teigman’s arrival follows several key additions to Cadwalader’s senior lawyer ranks. In recent months, partner Steven Baker joined the firm to lead litigation and international arbitration efforts in London; Jason Halper, a former partner of Cadwalader, rejoined the New York office as Co-Chair of the firm’s Global Litigation Group; and Joseph Facciponti, a former federal prosecutor with significant experience in the financial industry, also joined the firm in New York.
