Finally, a team lead by partners Stuart Cable, Lisa Haddad, Brad Weber, Jacqueline Mercier and Blake Liggio was recognized in the “Innovation in unlocking and delivering value” category for Goodwin’s role in guiding client Citrix through a Reverse Morris Trust merger of Citrix’s GoTo business with LogMeIn.
