Dallas office managing partner Glenn West has been named Adviser Dealmaker of the Year in the 2014 Mergers & Acquisitions Awards competition. In addition, AMR Corporation’s $18 billion merger with US Airways, on which Glenn and the Weil team advised AMR, was recognized as Deal of the Year in the Mega Deal ($1 billion and up) category. Weil also advised AMR in its chapter 11 proceeding. The awards, presented by D CEO and the Association for Corporate Growth, were given to honorees at a ceremony in Dallas on May 6.
In singling out West for recognition, D CEO wrote: “A number of attorneys and other advisors had busy years in 2013 helping make mergers and acquisitions happen. And then there was Glenn West.”
The D CEO and Association for Corporate Growth Mergers & Acquisitions Awards program recognizes outstanding corporate transactions in the Dallas-Fort Worth area and the dealmakers who help put them together. Nominees were solicited through online entries and were evaluated by a panel of distinguished judges representing the North Texas dealmaking community.
