Seyfarth Shaw LLP announced today the arrival of Paul Pryzant as a partner in the firm’s Corporate department in Houston. Pryzant joins Seyfarth from Burleson LLP, where he was a partner at the energy law boutique from 2008.

For more than 30 years, Pryzant has advised clients in a wide range of mergers & acquisitions, equity and debt financings, joint ventures, strategic alliances, and other corporate transactions. His practice includes securities, venture capital, executive compensation and commercial operating contracts. His mergers and acquisitions practice involves a wide range of industries including oilfield services, drilling, industrial services and products, healthcare, and software and technology.

“As we continue to strategically grow our Corporate team across the country, Paul brings deep expertise in middle market mergers and acquisitions for our private equity clients and strategic buyers and sellers. Adding Paul expands an already deep corporate bench in Houston,” said Paul Mattingly, chair of Seyfarth’s Corporate department.

Over the course of his career, Pryzant has served as General Counsel for two public companies, and one private company in the process of going public. He regularly advises emerging growth companies and their angel investors, from start-up, through financing, to exit, and currently serves as the General Counsel of the Houston Angel Network.

“Paul has an outstanding reputation in Houston, successfully representing private equity funds and their portfolio companies in complex mergers and acquisitions, as well as serving corporate clients as outside general counsel,” said Mark Coffin, managing partner of Seyfarth’s Houston office. “Paul is a trusted advisor who brings a practical blend of legal and business experience to each transaction, and is well-skilled to guide our clients through a challenging energy economy here in Texas and throughout the region.”

Pryzant received his J.D. from the University of Texas School of Law, and earned his B.S., cum laude, from the University of Pennsylvania, The Wharton School.
