Partner Andy Lock was named an M&A Rising Star in The Deal’s Dealmaker Quarterly for the first quarter of 2020. The Deal considered newly elected partners at the country’s top law firms before selecting the most promising new M&A partners for 2020 based on their recent wins, career accomplishments and potential for future success.
Based in the Boston office, Lock is a partner in the firm’s Business Law Department and a member of its Private Equity group. His practice focuses on M&A, private equity investments, and other corporate matters in a broad range of industries, and he has significant experience representing both corporate strategic and private equity clients in structuring, negotiating, documenting and closing public and private mergers, acquisitions and dispositions. Lock was recently featured in PE Hub, where he provided guidance on how the CARES Act will impact PE- and VC- firms.
The Deal highlighted Lock’s work representing the Boston Celtics in their October 2019 acquisition of NBA development team Maine Basketball LLC, as well as his representation of Charlesbank Capital Partners LLC-backed Ensono LP in its $405 million buyout of Wipro Ltd. (WIT) data center services business. Goodwin partner Jon Herzog praised Lock as having “a rare combination of exceptional technical skills and the ability to speak plainly and focus clients on what matters.”
