Industrial Gas Industry M&A Team

Industrial Gas & Energy Industries Team

Since 2002, Leaders has partnered with industrial gas and cryogenic industry legend J.R. “Buzz” Campbell. Buzz’s career in the industry spans six decades, and his knowledge and reputation are without equal.

Since joining forces with Buzz, our clients in the industry have ranged from large domestic and multi-national public and private companies to small family-owned businesses. We have represented medical, industrial and specialty gas distributors, and equipment manufacturers in sale transactions, divestitures, acquisitions, mergers, private equity recapitalizations, and management and shareholder buyouts. We have also provided neutral negotiation facilitation services in connection with transactions in the industrial gas industry.

For over 15 years Leaders has represented petroleum marketing, convenience store and retail gasoline, wholesale and retail distillates, and wholesale and retail propane businesses in transactions of all types and structures. Transactions in which Leaders has been involved in these industries have included sales, divestitures, management buyouts, acquisitions, and shareholder buyouts. Leaders has also represented companies that are involved in the wholesale and retail distribution and service of heating equipment, including propane powered direct vent heating equipment, boilers, and on-demand water heating equipment.
