The banking and corporate attorneys in Gunster‘s South Florida offices worked on significant transactions in 2014. Its mergers and acquisitions work, and Gunster shareholder Mike Mitrione, are profiled in the recent financial edition of the South Florida Legal Guide.
The article, “Big Deals,” mentions the 2014 merger agreement between 1st United Bancorp and Valley National Bancorp. Gunster attorneys represented 1st United in negotiations and associated SEC and bank regulatory matters. Gunster first announced the deal in June of this year.
The deal stands out, Mitrione says, for its size and the desire on the part of a leading bank to enter the Florida market, according to the publication. It may well be a harbinger of more such deals to come, he tells the South Florida Legal Guide.
