April 27, 2021

McGuireWoods earned recognition from prominent Texas business and media organizations for advising private equity clients in notable deals over the past year.

The Association for Corporate Growth Houston recognized McGuireWoods for its role representing Chicago-based independent sponsor Rising Point Capital in its 2020 acquisition of Conoco Services, an industrial cleaning and repair services company. The deal was named runner-up for Industrial, Power & Infrastructure Deal of the Year between $25 million and $100 million. Dallas partner Akash Sethi and associate Amish Shah led the deal team advising Rising Point Capital.

McGuireWoods also represented clients in two transactions that are finalists for “Deal of the Year” in D CEO magazine’s Mergers & Acquisitions Awards.

The firm advised Latticework Capital Management, a Dallas-based, healthcare-focused private equity firm, in its strategic investment in Beacon Behavioral Hospital, one of the largest psychiatric treatment providers in Louisiana. Sethi, Shah and Chicago associate Lauren Graff represented Latticework.

In addition, McGuireWoods assisted Align Capital Partners, with offices in Dallas and Cleveland, in its acquisition of Electronic Transaction Consultants, a services provider and systems integrator of tolling technology and smart mobility solutions. Dallas partner Jon Finger, counsel Ryan Mitchell and associate Samuel Neece advised Align Capital.

“This recognition reflects the depth and talent of our private equity team in Texas and throughout the country,” said Sethi, former managing partner of the Dallas office. “We were proud to assist our valued clients in these deals.”

McGuireWoods consistently ranks among the leading law firms for U.S. and global M&A deals, including private equity transactions. The firm earned top 10 rankings for U.S. and global M&A deals completed in 2020 in league tables published by Refinitiv and Bloomberg.
