Texas Lawbook Highlights Gardere’s M&A Practice

27 October 2016 News

The Texas Lawbook recently featured Gardere in its Corporate Deal Tracker for reporting 14 M&A transactions closed during the first three quarters of 2016.

The article notes that while the number of energy-related deals remains flat, other sectors such as technology and manufacturing have witnessed a surge in merger and acquisition activity. Partner Chris Converse, co-chair of the Firm’s private equity practice, told the publication that recent favorable trends associated with domestic manufacturers and a continued uptick in private equity sponsored acquisitions are fueling the M&A market.

“A lot of these companies are family-owned but don’t have succession planning in place, or a son or daughter taking over the business,” said Mr. Converse, adding that “private equity firms have identified [these businesses] as being good opportunities to grow and be more professionally managed.”

Mr. Converse noted that the Firm determined not to report all of its M&A deals closed in the first three quarters due to client confidentiality obligations, and that Gardere’s M&A practice is busier than ever due to a strategic commitment to represent private equity sponsors in their M&A activities both in Texas and throughout the U.S.
