Seth T. Goldsamt Partner

New York
T 646.414.6942 | F 973.535.3319

There’s really nothing that gets Seth Goldsamt, a Partner in the Specialty Finance group, more excited about the practice of law than negotiating a deal. In fact, he says, bridging the gaps between varying interests, needs, wants, experiences, backgrounds and temperaments while gaining consensus among different constituencies are what drive him. “And why I didn’t become a litigator,” he explains dryly.

Seth advises his U.S. and international clients (including investment funds) on a broad range of private equity transactions, mergers and acquisitions, public and private securities offerings (including PIPE transactions), equity co-investments and bridges, joint ventures, venture capital, mezzanine finance, and restructuring transactions.

Particularly experienced in representing clients in the technology, telecommunications, energy/renewable energy, pharmaceuticals, medical device and health care industries, Seth also advises clients on general corporate matters, various aspects of corporate governance and compliance with federal securities laws. His practical, business-oriented solutions, responsiveness, grace under pressure, ability to transcend cultural differences and constant attention to clients’ business needs beyond their legal issues have won him client loyalty and accolades.

Seth is a frequent traveler to Denmark, where he regularly advises Danish companies on doing business in the U.S. and, on one trip, married his wife.
