McGuireWoods partner David McLean has been selected as a finalist for Dealmaker of the Year (Attorney) in D CEO’s 2023 Mergers & Acquisitions Awards.

The awards recognize the top acquisitions, dispositions and other financial transactions in North Texas over the past year and the individuals who closed those deals. Finalists will be featured in the May issue of D CEO magazine and honored at an awards ceremony this spring.

McLean advises private investment funds and sponsors in equity and debt investing activities. Among his notable deals in 2022, McLean represented private equity firm Banner Ventures in its partnership with Zerorez Franchising Systems, a residential and commercial services franchisor. He also advised private equity client NCK Capital in its acquisition of English Rising Supply, a marketer and distributor of English-style equestrian equipment and products.

McLean was named D CEO’s Attorney of the Year in the 2020 Mergers & Acquisitions Awards. In 2021, he was named to the magazine’s Dallas 500 list honoring North Texas’ top dealmakers and influential leaders. In addition, McLean led McGuireWoods teams in closing two transactions named finalists in the 2022 Mergers & Acquisitions Awards.

“It is an honor to be included in this group of respected attorneys and deal professionals,” McLean said. “I am grateful to my clients for the opportunity to help them achieve their business goals.”
