Practice Areas

Greg O’Shaughnessy is a corporate partner in the Boston office of Nixon Peabody and a member of the firm’s Private Equity and Mergers & Acquisitions practice. Mr. O’Shaughnessy’s practice is focused on providing a broad range of transaction-based services for private equity, growth equity and venture capital investors as well as strategic buyers and entrepreneurs.

Career

I focus my practice on handling sophisticated middle-market corporate transactions and spend my time representing clients in three principal areas.

Private Equity

I represent private equity, growth equity and venture capital investors in connection with the structuring, negotiating and closing of their portfolio company investments and exits. After one of my private equity clients closes a portfolio company acquisition, I typically handle the ongoing legal work for the portfolio company.

Strategic M&A

I represent large strategics in connection with their middle-market acquisitions and divestitures.

Entrepreneurial M&A

I work with leading entrepreneurs building middle-market companies to help them grow their businesses, and then I represent them in connection with an M&A exit or other significant liquidity event, most often with a private equity investor or a strategic buyer on the other side of the table.

I have had and continue to have the good fortune of working with investor and entrepreneurial clients across a wide range of industries, which has allowed me to take a deep dive in a variety of different areas, including health care, life sciences, aerospace and defense, food and beverage, retail, clean-tech, plastics, manufacturing, software and high tech.

Professional Memberships

Gregory is currently serving on the Board of Overseers of the Boston Museum of Science. He served as the Chair of The Innovators and as a member of the Board of Trustees of MOS from 2011 – 2013.
