Debt and Equity Financing

We represent banks and other lenders, as well as corporate and individual borrowers, in a wide range of debt financing transactions. These matters include secured and unsecured commercial loans, real estate loans, workout loans, acquisition-related financings, securities lending and repurchase transactions and related derivative transactions.

Our lawyers regularly assist issuers, investors, underwriters and placement agents participating in public and private offerings of both equity and debt securities. From private placements with angel investors and venture capital firms to SEC-registered initial and follow-on public offerings, we focus on the business terms, the due diligence, the disclosure and the regulatory compliance issues that must be addressed in each transaction. We also advise hedge funds and private equity funds in creating onshore and offshore capital-raising structures and implementing their portfolio investments.
