McDermott Represents Compass Surgical Partners in its Partnership with TPG


McDermott Will & Emery represented Compass Surgical Partners, LLC (Compass), an independent, full-service ambulatory surgery center (ASC) development and management partner, in its partnership and significant strategic investment by TPG Growth, middle-market and growth equity platform of TPG Inc., a global alternative asset management firm.

TPG Growth is funding the investment, participating alongside existing investor Health Velocity Capital. As a strategic capital partner, TPG will bring valuable expertise to the Compass Surgical Partners leadership team, accelerating growth and scaling capacity in response to increased demand in ASC joint ventures from health system partners.

The McDermott team was led by Krist Werling, Mike Abercrombie and Elliana Lenz with valuable assistance from Kate Vera, Danielle Golino, Jamie Gelfman, Scott Weinstein, Cornelia Dean, Alejandro Ruiz, Kwabena Yeboah, Ty Carson and Kevin Sullivan.
