Munger Tolles Corporate Partner Robert Denham Named Dealmaker of the Week

The American Lawyer magazine has named Munger, Tolles & Olson corporate partner Robert Denham its Dealmaker of the Week for leading Berkshire Hathaway’s $44 billion acquisition of Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad. The deal, announced November 3, provides that Berkshire acquire, for $100 per share in cash and stock, the remaining 77% of outstanding BNSF shares that it doesn’t already own.

“This is a classic Berkshire Hathaway investment,” Mr. Denham told The American Lawyer. “The company has a long track record of transport and energy deals, if you'll pardon the pun.”
