May 8, 2015

WASHINGTON, DC, May 8, 2015Catherine Dargan, co-chair of Covington’s mergers and acquisitions practice, was named one of The National Law Journal’s “Outstanding Women Lawyers.”

The award recognizes 75 of the most accomplished women in the legal profession today, including judges, corporate counsel, law firm partners, and public interest lawyers. Among the factors considered were the development of successful practices, attainment of professional leadership roles, performance in significant cases, and demonstrated efforts to improve diversity in the profession.

In its profile, the publication noted that Ms. Dargan recently led M&A deals with an aggregate value in excess of $8.5 billion, including AstraZeneca PLC's $4.1 billion acquisition of Bristol-Myers Squibb Co.'s interests in the companies' diabetes alliance and Salix Pharmaceuticals' $2.6 billion acquisition of Santarus Inc.

“Often the only woman, and the only woman of color, at the male-dominated negotiating table for mergers and acquisitions, Catherine Dargan handles the deals with incomparable success,” the NLJ wrote.

The profile also highlighted Ms. Dargan’s role on Covington’s management committee and her involvement with the creation of Covington Kids Early Learning Center.
