Public Company & Capital Market Lawyers | McDermott

Capital Markets & Public Companies


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).
