Mason provides clients with a well-rounded perspective gained from working at both large law firms and in-house at an NYSE-listed financial services company. He has counseled a range of public and private funds, investment banks, and companies and has participated in transactions at every stage of the life cycle of a company, from early-stage financings and initial public offerings to public- and private-debt financing, mergers and acquisitions, and a restructuring.
In addition, Mason supports clients’ commercial needs, negotiating contracts such as nondisclosure agreements, vendor engagements, and supplier agreements. With significant experience in situation management, he has offered clients pragmatic advice on corporate governance matters, including internal investigations and whistleblowing matters.
Prior to joining Lowenstein, Mason practiced in the corporate department of an Am Law 50 firm where he focused on capital markets, U.S. securities laws, and general corporate matters. He has represented investment banks in a range of sectors (including energy, biopharma, retail, transportation, and manufacturing) regarding Rule 144A high-yield debt and convertible debt offerings. He also represented public and private companies in debt (secured and unsecured) and equity capital markets transactions.
Mason is a former General Counsel of an NYSE-listed financial services company, where he helped execute mergers, acquisitions, and capital markets offerings and financings by the company’s non-traded REIT, public REIT, and investment fund clients. He was responsible for SEC filings; managed shareholder matters; and negotiated corporate transactions, such as merger, acquisition and divestiture activity, debt financings, and debt and equity security issuances. He also advised the board of directors on litigation and enforcement matters and on responding to state and FINRA inquiries. He negotiated and consummated the divestiture, liquidation, or sale of multiple subsidiary divisions and advised the board of directors during the client’s Chapter 11 restructuring.
