WSJ Pro Quotes Ryan Purpura on Private Equity Investment in Oil and Gas

August 14, 2017

McGuireWoods partner Ryan Purpura, chair of the firm’s oil and gas practice, was quoted in an Aug. 11 WSJ Pro article on energy-focused private equity firms focusing on opportunities in less-crowded spaces.

Purpura noted, “One thing we’re noticing is a rise in private-equity funds that are probably a little bit more focused on the lower- to middle-market space.” He added that debt-focused investment firms also are capitalizing on the lack of traditional banking credit available in the sector.
