Recent Private Equity/Venture Capital Representative Matters
- Represented a private company focused on midstream development, operations, and acquisitions, in the formation of a joint venture with a large credit investment platform; following the formation the Joint Venture purchased all of the membership interests and related inventory of the owner and operator of a liquefied propane gas storage distribution and marine terminal in New Hampshire and acquired a midstream facility in Rhode Island for a $30 million development.
- Represented Houston-based Welcome Group in the contribution of its portfolio of real property to a newly-formed joint venture with New York-based Almanac Realty Investors, which committed $300 million in growth capital to the new venture.
The Welcome Group was able to move forward with negotiations with total confidence because we were represented by a firm that had been there 50 times before. Bill Boyar knew one of the principals of the New York firm that was furnishing the $300 million and his advice to us was priceless. BoyarMiller is the best.
BoyarMiller has been our legal partner (transaction and litigation) since the inception of Sunland Capital. My historical personal friendship with Chris Hanslik has flourished over the years into a much broader professional relationship . . each based on certain core values and a foundation of high integrity. Chris is always exceptionally responsive and has guided us through numerous complex legal matters. On the transaction support side, Gus Bourgeois has worked with us on every one of our acquisitions. Gus brings to our team a powerful combination of strong legal counsel coupled with a practical business perspective . . somewhat unusual in today’s legal community. Needless to say, we value our strong relationship with BoyarMiller quite highly.
Legal counsel, the saying goes, promises process, but not product. My experiences with BoyarMiller, however, confirm to me they are product-orientated. They are not oriented to the process of papering the deal. It’s the deal, stupid. That operating premise distinguishes BoyarMiller. They are true counsel that seeks best in breed lawyers to paper the deal only after BoyarMiller has first come to understand the product.
