Allen & Overy's London US law group has completed its first M&A transaction
A team led by partner Thomas Werlen advised SIIF Energies, a subsidiary of Electricité de France Group (EdF), on its acquisition of wind energy company EnXco Group. A&O expanded its US group to include M&A last year when it hired M&A partner Dan Cunningham from Cravath Swaine & Moore and capital markets partner Werlen from Davis Polk & Wardwell.
