October 20, 2011
O'Melveny Mergers and Acquisitions Practice Group partner Sam Zucker commented on the decision by Abbott Laboratories to split the company into two US$20 billion publicly traded entities for The Deal Pipeline. In the October 20, 2011 story, "Observers Laud Abbott Decision to Break Apart," Zucker says it seems to be a smart move. "These are two very different businesses," Zucker told the Deal. "Arguably they are held back by one another."
