Cadwalader Names James Woolery Firm-wide Deputy Chairman And Co-Chair Of Corporate Department

NEW YORK, Feb. 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft LLP (Cadwalader), a leading counselor to global corporations and financial institutions, announced today that James Woolery will join as Deputy Chairman of the firm and Co-Chair of its Corporate department. The firm's partnership unanimously elected Woolery to this new role. The move enhances the firm's ability to counsel clients through the rapidly changing business, strategic, regulatory and legal challenges they face. 

" Jim Woolery is the epitome of the Cadwalader lawyer – an exceptional legal mind that can fashion practical business solutions to complex legal problems," said W. Christopher White, Chairman of Cadwalader. "Jim brings more than two decades of experience advising corporations and boards on the most important business challenges facing them. His arrival at Cadwalader adds to our already strong corporate capabilities. His partnership with our roster of highly experienced and respected corporate, financial and regulatory attorneys will help us continue to advance our clients' interests."

Woolery, who is widely recognized as one of the country's leading M&A advisors, joins the firm from JPMorgan Chase & Co., where he was co-head of North American Mergers and Acquisitions. He has been involved in some of the most important M&A transactions in recent history, including a range of friendly, hostile, activist-defense and corporate governance reviews taken up by public company boards.

Prior to JPMorgan, Woolery spent his career at Cravath, Swaine & Moore LLP, where he established and led Cravath's Business Development and Strategy Group. He joined Cravath as an associate in 1994 and was elected a partner in 2002.

Notable transactions on which Woolery has worked during his career include Dell Inc.'s recent definitive agreement to be acquired by Michael Dell and Silver Lake Partners, Medco's merger with Express Scripts, Air Products' public tender offer and proxy fight for Airgas, and Clorox's successful defense against Carl Icahn.

At Cadwalader, Woolery will drive the corporate practice and be responsible for business development, strategy and external relations. He will see select transactions from JP Morgan through to their closing.
