US: Leading M&A partner starting boutique firm

 |  October 27, 2016

After 33 years with the firm, former co-chair of Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison’s corporate department, Toby Myerson, is leaving to form his own business advisory boutique at the start of next year.

At his new venture, Longsight Strategic Advisors, Myerson will advise corporate leaders, boards of directors and business owners on governance issues, complicated transactions and crisis management. He said he hopes to fill a niche advising managers when they face unprecedented crises, naming the scandals engulfing Wells Fargo, Volkswagen and Mylan Inc. as examples.
