Capital Markets/Finance

Transactions in the capital markets are known to be subject to long lead times and shifting market environments, conditions that can cost an inordinate amount of time and money, yet carry no guarantee of success. Accordingly, clients of all kinds prize the ability of a law firm to see deals through to a successful conclusion.

Our Capital Markets group has consistently demonstrated that ability. We have the deep market knowledge and broad experience to avoid the many pitfalls that can derail otherwise promising deals. We act in a wide range of registered and unregistered securities offerings across a wide array of industries, with a particular affinity for financial service companies of all kinds.

Known for smaller teams—and for a high level of partner involvement—we have the agility to assess and seize promising opportunities in the public markets, bringing uncommon creativity to the structuring of our deals, and a brisk efficiency to their execution.

Steeped in both industry knowledge and the particulars of our clients’ business, we are adept at structuring the right transaction in the right way. We know the markets. We know the players. We understand the complex business implications of each transaction we undertake.

Most of all, we are intimately involved in the long-term business prospects of our clients. They trust us to provide savvy advice, even when that advice runs counter to conventional wisdom or to their own predispositions. If a deal feels wrong, we will not hesitate to say so.

We recently received the M&A Advisor middle-market financing “Law Firm of the Year” award, acknowledging our diverse and complex portfolio of financing deals. Chambers USA and Legal 500 have consistently recognized the firm as a leader in this space.

Our services include:

  • Initial public offerings and secondary offerings
  • Private placements, including institutional private placements under SEC Rule 144A
  • Equity securities, including convertible preferred stock
  • Debt securities, secured and unsecured
  • Registered direct offerings, CMPOs and ATMs 
  • Privately and publicly owned investment funds
  • Private investments in public equity (PIPEs)
  • Due diligence, drafting, and when applicable, SEC review processes for all transactions
