At age 39, Michael Lubowitz has already closed a dozen deals worth at least $1 billion each. His total deals have a market value of more than $50 billion. Among his billion-dollar deals, he represented General Electric Co.’s GE Capital unit (since broken up) in its $3 billion acquisition of J.C. Penney’s credit card business. He also represented Hughes’ satellite manufacturing business in its sale to Boeing Co.-valued at $3.75 billion-and DirecTV in its high-profile spinoff from General Motors involving Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp. This year, Lubowitz has been representing Merrill Lynch in its role as financial advisor to The Procter & Gamble Co. in connection with the company’s acquisition of Gillette, a $57 billion deal. He also handled Pirelli’s sale of Optical Technologies to Corning Corp. for $3.3 billion, DirecTV’s deal with the National Football League for broadcast exclusivity rights for all of the games on the NFL’s Sunday Ticket program, worth more than $1 billion, and DirecTV’s acquisition of around 2 million additional subscribers from Pegasus satellite, a deal valued at more than $1 billion. Lubowitz is also a legal expert in satellite technology, having helped DirecTV develop into an international company. Lubowitz began working at Weil Gotshal directly out of law school.
