Kirkland & Ellis M&A and private equity partner John Kaercher of Austin powered through a hectic weekend recently, working as a lead lawyer on three deals announced over a 24-hour period on Sept. 26 and 27, while also attending a family wedding in Kansas City, Missouri, as the deals neared the finish line.

The weekend before the announcement of the deals was “completely full of work,” Kaercher said, noting that he had to step out of the wedding reception on Sept. 23 a few times to take phone calls. He booked a return flight to Austin late in the day on Sept. 24, because he knew he would be working actively on the transactions beginning in the wee hours of the morning.
