Client Conversations: Interview with Matthew J. Maletta, Executive Vice President and Chief Legal Officer of Endo Pharmaceuticals

Date: 5 October 2020

In this episode, we interview Matthew Maletta, executive vice president and chief legal officer of Endo Pharmaceuticals. Prior to joining Endo in 2015, he served as vice president, associate general counsel, and corporate secretary of Allergan. He played a key role defending Allergan from an unsolicited takeover bid by Valeant Pharmaceuticals and Pershing Square Capital Management in 2014 and in the $70 billion acquisition of Allergan by Actavis in 2015. Listen to how Matthew was able to take advantage of the opportunities at a small firm and then move on to Skadden Arps, his role in a hostile takeover, and his role now as chief legal officer of Endo Pharmaceuticals.
