Capital is the lifeblood of a company’s operations. McDermott’s capital markets and public companies lawyers have extensive experience advising clients—including issuers and underwriters—with raising capital in the public markets. We also provide counsel on the rules and regulations that accompany operating as a public company.
Clients appreciate our ability to see beyond the current need and bring a strategic approach to capital requirements. We have demonstrated success utilizing the full range of instruments, from traditional equity raises such as initial public offerings (IPOs), follow-on offerings and at-the-market offerings, to private placements. We also have considerable experience with special-purpose acquisition vehicles (SPACs) and real estate investment trusts (REITs).
For debt offerings, we’ve done it all. We have a successful track record helping clients with their registered and unregistered debt offerings, including investment grade, high yield and convertible notes offerings. In addition, given our deep understanding of the compliance requirements of various governing agencies and regulatory bodies—particularly the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), NYSE and NASDAQ—clients regularly rely on our professional judgment, practical advice and counsel regarding difficult disclosure and SEC compliance issues.
Our lawyers deliver a complete service offering to address our clients’ full range of capital market needs and governance compliance requirements. We pride ourselves on staying abreast of market trends, delivering pragmatic solutions proactively in support of capital needs and governance requirements, providing sage counsel to quickly resolve compliance issues without disruption to business operations.
