What does it take to be one of the best corporate legal teams in our nation's capital? Just in the last year, the W&D legal team:
1. Closed four strategic acquisitions - Alliant Capital, Zelman & Associates, TapCap, and GeoPhy (closed in February 2022) - collectively valued at $1.1B, which expands W&D's capabilities and market position
2. Negotiated W&D's $600MM senior secured term loan facility, which was the first leveraged loan tied to Secured Overnight Financing Rate (SOFR)
3. Negotiated a $5.6MM renewable solar energy investment, which advanced W&D's sustainability efforts
As a result, they took home the ACC National Capital Region "Outstanding Law Department Award" in the DMV region.
Congratulations to Richard Lucas, Dan Groman, Skai Bateman, Anna Smith, Kelly O’Neill, Colleen Chalmers, Gabriela Salazar, Catalina Badessich and Noelle Gebelein for achieving this notable recognition. We're fortunate to have such an incredible legal team here driving excellence and growth.
