Suddendorf, senior vice president and chief counsel for The Doctors Company. "This level of client service is why we continue to turn to Thelen to handle these types of transactions and other matters."

San Francisco Business and Finance partner Philip W. Peters, who led the Thelen team, said that the firm's ability to draw on experienced practitioners in many disciplines ensures that clients have a single source for the timely and effective resolution of complex issues, which frequently arise in these types of business combinations.

Mr. Peters was assisted in the deal by San Francisco Business and Finance special counsel Marc A. Greendorfer; Washington, DC Compensation and Benefits partner Benjamin I. Delancy; San Francisco Labor and Employment partner Robert A. Dolinko; San Francisco Antitrust partner Paul R. Griffin; and San Francisco Tax special counsel Mark McCleary.
