Capital Formation/Capital Raises
We routinely work with founders, real estate sponsors and management teams to structure capital raises of all types and sizes, beginning with the traditional “friends & family” round, through angel investors and subsequent series. Primarily due to our broad experience working with companies conducting capital raises, we often are called upon to represent institutional investors and family offices as they participate in capital raises.
We advise companies and entrepreneurs on raising equity and debt capital through Regulation D and Regulation S private placement offerings. We assist clients throughout the United States to navigate the rapidly evolving securities laws and SEC regulations. We have experience preparing private placement offerings through a variety of offering structures, including opportunity zone funds, and in every major industry sector including: investment funds, real estate, manufacturing, healthcare, hospitality, construction, food and beverage and others.
We provide a broad range of expertise ranging from senior secured credit facilities to mezzanine financing to negotiation of ISDA Swap transactions. We often work in tandem with our Mergers & Acquisitions team to negotiate acquisition financing documents on behalf of borrowers.
Our lender and financial institution side practice ranges from working with community banks to large national players in all aspects of commercial and corporate financing transactions, including negotiating, structuring, documenting all manner of credit facilities and loan transactions.
