I am very pleased to be joining this team.”
During his career, Mr. Pascarella has represented clients in landmark antitrust cases including Pacific Bell v. linkLine Communications, Bell Atlantic Corp. v. Twombly, and State of New York et al. v. Microsoft Corporation. He also defended some of the largest mergers in recent years and designed pre-merger planning processes that enabled clients to expedite the capture of merger-related synergies. Mr. Pascarella also assists clients in various regulatory and legislative arenas.
