DLA Piper has added Matt Servies as a partner in the firm’s transactions services practice – a sub-practice within the corporate and private equity practices in Atlanta, US. He previously spent nine years as a partner at Ice Miler in Indianapolis.
Servies focuses his practice advising private equity funds and their portfolio companies on tax structuring and corporate matters in connection with fund formation, acquisitions and dispositions, financing transactions and operational matters.
