Sullivan & Cromwell LLP

As one of the foremost private equity legal advisers, Alison Ressler, Co-Head of Sullivan & Cromwell’s Private Equity Group, has spent the past year successfully steering significant, multi-stakeholder, cross-border deals to closure. In her 35-year career, she has built a high profile practice around blockbuster deals that have reshaped industries and had an impact on the world at large.

One example of her work is Syntel Inc.’s $3.57 billion acquisition by Atos. Ressler represented Syntel, Inc., as it announced its agreement to be acquired by Atos S.E. in an all cash transaction valued at approximately $3.57 billion, including Syntel’s net debt. The transaction was unanimously approved by the full Board of Directors of Syntel based on the unanimous recommendation of a Special Committee of the Board. Ressler also recently advised Loon, a Google X project working to bring the internet to people around the world using advanced air balloons, in its separation from Google to establish Loon as an “Alphabet Company.”
