O’Melveny’s Siegel is The American Lawyer’s “Dealmaker in the Spotlight” for May 2013May 13, 2013
O’Melveny & Myers LLP partner Robert Siegel was selected as The American Lawyer’s May 2013 “Dealmaker in the Spotlight” for his work advising US Airways Group Inc. in a key labor agreement reached with pilot unions that paved the way for the US$11 billion merger of US Airways and American Airlines Inc. The spotlight cites the deal as notable because unions typically remain at status quo until after a merger. Reaching a premerger deal “was a much more constructive way to approach it,” and gave the companies a predictable cost structure, Siegel said.
Siegel is a member of O'Melveny's Labor and Employment Practice and resides in the Firm's Los Angeles office.
