Client Comments

"I have had the pleasure of working with Ann Murphy from Quarles & Brady for the past 14 years. The majority of the opportunities we have worked on together have been complex M&A transactions. We have typically provided the senior debt in the buy-out transactions and have leaned on Ms. Murphy's creativity/negotiation skills with the various capital providers (private equity groups and subordinated debt providers). Her experience, strong work ethic, and communication skills make it challenging to select anyone else when given the opportunity. She is one of the most important members of our team and I would highly recommend Ms. Murphy and Quarles & Brady as a firm."
