James Griffin and Glenn West Recognized by D CEO Magazine as Most Influential Business Leaders for 2019

Corporate partners James Griffin and Glenn West have been recognized in D CEO Magazine’s 2019 Dallas 500 publication as two of the Dallas area’s most powerful and influential business leaders in the category of “Law – Mergers & Acquisitions.” This is the second time Mr. Griffin has been honored, and marks the fourth consecutive year that Mr. West has been honored.

A nationally recognized leader in M&A and corporate governance law, Mr. Griffin represents U.S. and multinational companies in a broad range of industries in their M&A activities. His experience in M&A and related transactions includes public and private company mergers, stock acquisitions, asset acquisitions, tender offers, divestitures, cross-border transactions, auction transactions, defensive strategies and going-private transactions, including some of the more prominent M&A transactions over the last decade. He also advises boards and special committees on fiduciary duties in the M&A context.

Similarly, Mr. West is one of the region’s most highly regarded M&A and private equity attorneys, having advised on many large and complex transactions at the regional, national and international level. He co-founded Weil’s Dallas office in 1987 and served as the office’s managing partner for two decades, helping to establish Weil’s reputation across the Southwest for handling sophisticated clients’ most critical legal matters.

This special annual publication, produced by D CEO’s editors after nearly a year of research and interviews, honors the most prominent business leaders in more than 60 industry categories who “make Dallas-Fort Worth’s economy tick.”
