Corporate Finance

Our experience encompasses the complete spectrum of equity, debt and hybrid instruments issued by regional and international companies in global markets. In a capital markets environment characterized by rapid change and innovation, our attorneys structure new securities and transactions tailored to each situation.

We represent issuers, investment banks and other parties in capital markets transactions with embedded derivatives elements and concurrent derivatives transactions, as well as in stand-alone over-the-counter derivatives transactions. Offerings in which we are involved regularly include convertible and exchangeable securities and other equity-linked products, as well as complex debt, equity and structured products. We also advise clients on a wide range of call spread transactions, registered forward contracts and share lending transactions. We also handle offerings to finance acquisitions, leveraged recapitalization and refinancing.

Our corporate finance department handles investments in public equity (PIPEs) as well as venture capital financing.

Whether negotiating a merger agreement, acquisition, or divestiture, rendering a fairness opinion, preparing for an appraisal, securities litigation, class action or derivative suits, issuing new securities, taking a firm private via an LBO or public via an IPO, our corporate finance attorneys are there to advise you.
