Capital Markets

Our lawyers have years of experience representing issuers and placement agents in private placements of equity and debt securities and other significant financing transactions.  We work closely with alliance law firms to assist public companies in their initial and secondary public offerings, shelf offerings, tender offers, Rule 144A offerings and ’34 Act compliance. We are familiar with the many types of equity securities, including common and preferred stock, convertible securities and PIPES (Private Investment in Public Equity Securities).  We are experienced in conducting due diligence, in preparing and analyzing registration statements and private placement memoranda, and in drafting shareholder agreements, LLC operating agreements and other governance documents, employment, noncompete and confidentiality agreements, registration rights agreements and other arrangements between and among companies, their management and founders  and investors.  In addition to US offerings, we have a particular expertise in representing US companies seeking to list on the AIM market of the London Stock Exchange, working closely with London-based lawyers.  Recently we represented AOI Medical, Inc. in its successful de-listing from AIM.
