Our first runner-up for Litigator of the Week this week is Matt Solum of Kirkland & Ellis, who got a shout out last week as part of a team that knocked out a securities suit against Micro Focus International PLC tied to its ADR price drop following its merger with HPE. Matt followed that win up with another on September 30, this time for Bristol-Myers Squibb and certain current and former directors and officers.
