Gardere Client Named Finalist For D CEO "Deal Of The Year"


Gardere Wynne Sewell LLP is proud to announce that a Firm client, LongWater Opportunities, was recently named a finalist for "Deal of the Year" by D CEO magazine for its 2014 sale of portfolio company, Circuitronics.

LongWater Opportunities, a private equity firm founded by Jordan Bastable and Brooks Burgum in 2009, is based in Dallas and Fargo, North Dakota. The firm acquired Irving, Texas-based Circuitronics in the midst of the recession in 2009. In unconventional fashion, LongWater Opportunities invested capital into the 35-year-old circuit board manufacturing company to modernize outdated equipment, accounting software and inventory.

In December 2014, a Gardere team led by Partner Chris Converse represented LongWater Opportunities in the sale of Circuitronics to Los Angeles"based Corridor Capital. "LongWater Opportunities is a key private equity relationship for Gardere," Mr. Converse says. "Our Private Equity Team is very honored to have represented LongWater Opportunities in its sale of Circuitronics, and we look forward to assisting the firm's dynamic team with future fund formation and acquisition matters."

The deal is profiled here in the May-June issue of D CEO magazine.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.


AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
