Varnum partner Pete Roth has been named “All Star Advisor of the Year” by the Detroit Chapter of Association for Corporate Growth. Roth will be recognized at ACG’s All Star Awards event on May 2 at the Townsend Hotel in Birmingham.
Roth is an experienced business and transactional attorney, with a heavy focus on mergers and acquisitions, including private equity, venture capital, family office and joint venture transactions. He worked on over 30 deals in 2022, with aggregate value approaching $1 billion.
Roth’s nomination for the recognition noted that he represents clients across the state and throughout the country on sophisticated deals with complex structuring, representation and warranty insurance and rollovers. A number of his deals were international and involved additional layers of complexity both legally and financially, with regard to M&A laws governing foreign entities.
The nomination notes Roth’s impact on the local M&A community, stating that his work representing the area on an international scale elevates the entire M&A community, positioning Michigan as a viable source for industry leaders.
Roth frequently serves as an expert source on M&A market trends and forecasts as well as on matters affecting privately-owned businesses. In addition to his M&A practice, he provides counseling with respect to day-to-day business issues of all types, including commercial transactions, contract negotiation, corporate structuring and succession planning.
ACG Detroit is a 400-member nonprofit business organization of M&A professionals who invest in middle-market companies. More about the All Star Awards event and honorees can be found here.
