Hunton & Williams LLP continues to grow its corporate practice with the arrival of partner G. Scott Rafshoon in the firm’s Atlanta office. Rafshoon represents clients involved in mergers and acquisitions and other corporate matters and focuses on infrastructure projects.
“Scott brings experience with innovative infrastructure privatization and significant M&A work,” said Thomas Hiner, co-head of the firm’s corporate team. “His practice is a great complement to our PPP practice and to our corporate finance team, which regularly handle complex national transactions.”
Rafshoon joins from Dentons, where he was a partner and a leader of its infrastructure and public-private partnerships practice. He is recognized widely for his work in the privatization and redevelopment of military housing facilities at more than 50 military bases nationwide. He has led negotiations with the US Army, Navy and Air Force; third-party construction, engineering and design firms; and private sources of capital to close complex P3 transactions. He also has advised clients on projects related to financing university student housing and other higher education infrastructure projects.
His practice also includes advising companies in connection with mergers, acquisitions, divestitures, corporate governance, and joint ventures; and he has longtime experience in selling businesses and assets in the United States and overseas. He also has served as outside general counsel to various clients. Rafshoon is an adjunct professor at Emory University School of Law where he teaches contract drafting and deal skills.
Before his legal career, Rafshoon was a magazine and newspaper reporter and editor focusing on government and politics. A graduate of Dartmouth College, he received his law degree from Emory University School of Law.
