David Marks has earned a reputation for closing deals by aligning economic interests on both sides of the transaction. David’s practice focuses on buy-side and sell-side private equity M&A, and he has extensive experience in healthcare, consumer products, and other industries. Over the past three years, David has played a key role in dozens of middle-market transactions of healthcare practices involving ophthalmology/optometry, dental practices, physical therapy, women’s health, gastroenterology and other specialties.

Private equity clients and investors value his counsel in recapitalizations, add-on acquisitions and roll-ups. Additionally, David represents private equity firms, investors and privately held companies in sales of portfolio companies and investments involving PE acquirers. Clients benefit from David’s ability to bring deals to successful conclusions despite the challenges often posed by the complex financing structures of private equity transactions.

Prior to joining Waller, David gained valuable experience as an associate in New York where he advised private equity firms, distressed businesses and major financial institutions in the design and implementation of sweeping operational and financial restructurings and the acquisition and sale of business segments and assets in some of the largest chapter 11 cases in recent history.
