He has substantial on-the-ground experience structuring mergers, acquisitions, divestitures and joint ventures on six continents.

Byron spent 17 years in-house, where he served in various general counsel roles at Tyco International, including as general counsel of its fire and security and telecom businesses and as general counsel of its international legal department, a function he created. Byron led or managed many of Tyco’s largest M&A deals, including the $12 billion acquisition of AMP Inc. and the $850 million purchase of AT&T Submarine Systems, and handled hundreds of middle-market deals around the globe. Byron handled Tyco’s initial foray into medical devices and led and managed many of the deals that led to the creation of Covidien, now a part of Medtronic.

Byron is a pioneer in the use of legal project management and Co-Chair of the ABA Committee on Mergers and Acquisitions’ Task Force on Legal Project Management. He is the Co-editor of the just published ABA Guidebook on “Using Legal Project Management in Merger and Acquisition Transactions”. Byron also created the first-of-its-kind web-based collaborative deal management portal, which the Firm has adopted and embraced as the M&A Gateway.
