McDermott Adds Private Equity Partner from Ropes & Gray


Gregory Metz has left another major law firm to join the Chicago corporate and transactional practice to focus on middle market private equity transactions. Mr. Metz praised McDermott’s depth in such practices as tax, debt finance and healthcare, and said the chance to position his clients to be selected for a merger makes private equity work so compelling because “it really pushes you to be as creative as you can be, as innovative as you can be, to distinguish your client’s case to be the successful buyer of a business.”
