Access to external private and/or public capital markets can be essential to a company's ability to grow and to realize long-term ambitions. Lowenstein Sandler’s Corporate Finance & Securities practice leverages diverse capital markets expertise and industry experience to deliver practical solutions in real time, structuring and completing deals effectively and efficiently, navigating the thicket of securities laws, and ensuring that transactions reflect current market terms. In addition to conventional private and public securities offerings, our practice includes specialized expertise, including:
Our Corporate Finance & Securities practice often serves as issuer’s counsel in initial public offerings, guiding issuers through the various stages of an IPO, as well as follow-on offerings. We assist our clients in developing appropriate disclosure documents, responding to SEC comments and assuring that the process is completed in a timely but thorough manner.
For public clients utilizing capital markets to enhance equity-based compensation plans, we draft state-of-the-art benefit plans. We also advise public companies on disclosure reporting requirements, insider trading, corporate governance, and enforcement matters. In addition to representing public companies in corporate finance transactions, we represent underwriters, placement agents, and investors.
Corporate finance is inherently competitive: there is a finite number of dollars available for investment. We recognize that timing is critical. Windows in the market can evaporate overnight, and opportunities can emerge when few are looking for them. Our clients demand, and we deliver, approaches that respond to market trends and that assure that our clients are best-positioned to take advantage of market turns.
