Arthur F. Golden

Mr. Golden is the senior Davis Polk partner and for nine years was a member of our Management Committee. He is also a member of the board of directors of Emerson Electric, where he sits on the Executive and Finance Committees and chaired the Corporate Governance Committee. He regularly represents large multinational companies with respect to acquisition-related transactions, advises clients on corporate governance and defensive matters, and is the senior partner in the firm’s practice in competition and antitrust matters, which include domestic and international mergers and acquisitions and antitrust counseling and litigation, both private and governmental (civil and criminal).

He has also represented clients in various contested acquisition matters, and numerous federal grand jury investigations, including the investigations of trading practices with respect to U.S. government securities, the air cargo, vitamins, commercial tissue, and explosives industries, violations of U.S. export controls, and the ‘Ill-Wind’ criminal investigation into fraud in the Pentagon procurement process.

He acted as one of the two lead negotiators for the U.S. tobacco industry in the effort to resolve, through legislation and settlements, the legal issues facing that industry.
