D CEO Recognizes McGuireWoods for Advising Clients in Top M&A Deals of 2021

March 17, 2022

McGuireWoods represented clients in two deals that are finalists for “Deal of the Year” in D CEO magazine’s Mergers & Acquisitions Awards, which honor individual achievements and notable transactions in North Texas that closed in 2021. Both transactions are finalists for the top deal valued between $50 million and $249 million.

Finalists will be featured in the May issue of D CEO and honored at an awards ceremony later this year.

McGuireWoods represented Memorial MRI & Diagnostic, a portfolio company of Dallas-based private equity firm Panos Partners, in its add-on acquisition of Prime Diagnostic Imaging and its pain management arm, Foundation Physicians Group. Dallas partner David McLean led McGuireWoods’ deal team, which included partner Bart Walker and associate Brian King in Charlotte and associates Erin Ball and Chelsie Kidd in Dallas.

In addition, McGuireWoods advised T-H Marine Supplies, a portfolio company of Dallas-based private equity firm Valesco Industries, in its $185 million sale to OneWater Marine Inc. McLean led the firm’s deal team, which included Dallas partner Stuart Rasley.

“We were proud to represent our valued clients in these transactions and are grateful for the trust they placed in us,” McLean said. “These deals are just two examples of the depth and talent of our private equity team in Dallas and throughout the United States.”

McGuireWoods consistently ranks among the leaders in U.S. and global M&A deals — including private equity transactions — in league tables published by Bloomberg and Refinitiv. The firm’s M&A practice has earned nationwide recognition from Chambers USA and The Legal 500. Corporate counsel singled out McGuireWoods as a leading law firm for M&A in “The BTI M&A Outlook 2022” report, calling the firm a “powerhouse” for private company deals and straightforward transactions and a “standout” for deals attracting regulatory scrutiny.
