MCDERMOTT FURTHER EXPANDS ITS PRIVATE EQUITY PRACTICE IN CHICAGO

McDermott Will & Emery is pleased to announce the arrival of Gregory Metz as a partner in the Firm’s Chicago office.  Mr. Metz has joined the Firm’s Corporate & Transactional Practice Group with a particular focus on middle market private equity.

Mr. Metz joins McDermott from Ropes & Gray where he counseled clients on complex business transactions and advised private equity clients on mergers and acquisitions, leveraged buyouts, debt and equity restructurings, divestitures, and executive compensation and incentive arrangements.  Mr. Metz has an active practice representing middle market private equity funds across a broad spectrum of industries including in the health care private equity arena.

“We are thrilled to welcome Greg to McDermott’s global platform where he and his clients will benefit from the Firm’s strength and experience in middle market private equity,” said Harris Siskind, head of McDermott’s Corporate & Transactional Practice. “In addition, Greg’s experience in health care private equity will further enhance McDermott’s prominence at the intersection of health and corporate transactions, and we are looking forward to having him on board as the Firm continues to deliver excellence to our clients in this arena.”

McDermott’s leading private equity practice provides a one-stop legal solution for its clients.  Mr. Metz will work with McDermott’s experienced private equity lawyers who have advised leading private equity funds on hundreds of buyout transactions.

“Greg is a highly respected private equity lawyer who is well known in the industry,” said Brooks Gruemmer, head of McDermott’s Chicago Corporate Advisory practice.   “We are excited that he has decided to join our group. The addition of Greg adds further depth to our growing private equity and M&A practices and will help us to continue to serve our national and international private equity and other transactional clients.”

Mr. Metz continues McDermott’s hiring trend in the Corporate & Transactional Practice group after the October arrivals of Albert Sokol in Boston and David Lipkin in Silicon Valley.  Other notable Corporate & Transactional hires in the recent months include New York partners Robert Goldstein, Frank Steinherr, Daniel Martin, Gary Emmanuel, and Jeremy Dickens.  The hiring trend can also be seen overseas with the additions of Alicia Videon, Piero Carbone, and Michael Holter in London, and the recent arrival of Dr. Michael Cziesla as a partner in Frankfurt.

Mr. Metz received his JD cum laude from Northwestern Pritzker School of Law and his BA summa cum laude from Washington University in St. Louis.
