Global law firm White & Case LLP has advised Macquarie Infrastructure Partners II (MIP II) in its agreement to sell WCA Waste Corporation (WCA) to GFL Environmental Inc. (GFL), a leading North American provider of diversified environmental solutions.
"We are delighted to have advised MIP II on its sale of WCA," said White & Case partner Luke Laumann, who co-led the transaction.
Founded in 2000, WCA provides solid waste collection, transfer, disposal and recycling services across 11 states in the Southeast and South-Central United States. MIP II acquired WCA through a take private transaction in 2012, and since that time has supported WCA's growth and operational improvements.
The sale agreement is subject to customary closing conditions including regulatory approval and is expected to reach completion in the fourth quarter of 2020.
The White & Case team was led by partners Jason Webber and Luke Laumann and included associates Daniel Kozin, Katherine Dineen Smith, Ross Guilder (M&A), partner Henrik Patel and associate Robin Heszkel (ECB) all in New York; partner Chad McCormick and associate Michael Rodgers (Tax) in Houston.
