We’ve orchestrated some of the largest, most sophisticated capital markets transactions in history – and we excel at creating bespoke, first-of-their-kind capital structures tailored to our client’s needs.

From the trading floor to the boardroom, our insider’s grasp of complex securities products – ranging from equity and debt offerings to IPOs, PIPEs and registered directs, Rule 144A offerings, Regulation S transactions, private placements, REIT financings, secured and unsecured credit facilities, commodities financings, debt financings, structured and derivative securities, and more – has led to an impressive portfolio of transactions.

Sophisticated, cross-border, multi-listed IPOs. Inventive high-yield debt offerings. The most complicated credit default swap ever developed. Numerous wins in enforcement proceedings before the SEC and CFTC. The largest debtor-in-possession loan in history. We were the architects behind all of those transactions – to just name a few.

Our clients include global investment banks, financial institutions, private equity firms, public/private companies and hedge funds. We offer guidance on all aspects of securities transactions and corporate financing, counseling on innovative deals from start to finish. We also analyze credit facilities, capital structures, lien structures and collateral risks to help our clients understand the opportunities and risks associated with issuing or acquiring various types of equity or debt instruments.

We work with our real estate and financial restructuring and litigation teams on REIT financings, guidance on debt financings and the representation of clients before the CFTC, SEC, NFA, FINRA and other exchanges.

For decades, we’ve worked with businesses and executives that put us at the epicenter of financial markets – and at the forefront of financial innovation. And during all that time, we’ve been designing creative, cutting-edge vehicles to meet these clients’ unique trading, financial and credit needs.
