Partner Chris Converse Featured in Law360 Dealmakers Q&A


Gardere Partner Chris Converse was recently featured in Law360's Dealmakers Q&A series. Mr. Converse is chair of the Firm's Securities and Corporate Governance Team.

As a participant in series, Mr. Converse discussed his deal experience and shared his perspective on tax reform, industry trends and what it takes to be a successful dealmaker.

"My number one piece of advice is to build relationships with those persons and institutions that are best positioned to execute on transactions. These days, much of the middle-market deals being consummated have some connection to private equity. The private equity firms executing these transactions come in all shapes and sizes, both funded and fundless; it is the proliferation of these small to mid-sized PE shops that is driving the current uptick in deal activity in the middle market."

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.
