With years of experience, our firm has established a strong reputation for combining legal advice with financial advice. Our lawyers take the time to carefully analyze each client’s business objectives and craft a strategy tailored to their circumstances. When it comes to financing transactions, it is useful to have experienced attorneys on your side who can develop, negotiate, and draft contracts that clearly state each side’s rights and obligations. We handle matters related to secured loan transactions, private equity financing, venture capital financing, equity and debt restructuring, and project financing.
Guidance for Financing Your Business Transaction
Lenders often secure loans by requiring a down payment or other collateral from the borrower. If the borrower then defaults on repaying the loan, it cedes the right to the collateral that was used to secure the loan in the first place. Our attorneys can advise you about the types of collateral that can be used to secure a loan.
Private Equity Financing
Private equity financing refers to third-party accredited investors who provide financing in exchange for funneling equity into the company. They are often known as “angel investors.” This type of financing may be useful when a company desires capital for acquisitions, recapitalization, or growth. The private equity clients of our attorneys have included management teams, funds, buyers, sellers, and lenders.
Venture Capital Financing
Venture capital financing is a system involving professional investors, funds, and institutional investors who provide support to funds and venture-backed companies, as well as their founders, from their inception until far into their development. Our experience ranges from representing businesses raising first-time funds to reviewing existing fund partnership agreements.
Debt & Equity Restructuring
Debt and equity restructuring is a method used by companies with outstanding debt obligations to modify the terms of an agreement in order to gain some type of advantage. Companies often use debt restructuring to avoid defaulting on an existing loan or to obtain a lower interest rate. Our lawyers guide clients through debt restructuring. This process can also involve extending the period of repayment, reducing the overall amount owed, or exchanging a percentage of debt for equity in the debtor’s business.
Project financing refers to long-term financing for a company’s infrastructure and industrial projects based on the projected cash flow from the completed project, rather than the investor’s own finances. These arrangements typically involve several equity investors as well as banks that provide loans for the project. Project financing is typically utilized for infrastructure projects, government buildings, transport systems, and more.
Whether you are a small business or a corporation, obtaining sufficient financing can be one of the most critical things you do for your enterprise. Our team has a comprehensive understanding of how the market works, including trends and issues that can affect your investments.
