Our client, a Texas-HQ law firm, is searching for a growth hire in its top-rate capital markets team at the midlevel (class of 2019-2021) in New York.
The capital markets and securities team has helped companies raise capital and comply with evolving securities laws and practices for more than four decades. The firm is securities counsel to more than 40 public companies ranging in size from small cap companies to large cap multi-national business entities.
The firm represents clients traded on all of the major U.S. securities exchanges, the “over-the-counter” markets, and many foreign markets such as the London Stock Exchange Alternate Investment Market (AIM), the Toronto Stock Exchange and the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange. In addition to public companies, the team also represents investment banks as underwriters and placement agents in capital markets transactions. While their clients span a broad range of industries, the firm has significant experience in the technology, life sciences, financial and banking, energy, manufacturing, hospitality and transportation industries. In particular, the team works on PIPE and debt capital markets transactions.
The firm’s cross-border work is supported by our offices in London, Mexico City and Shanghai. The team is adept at advising clients with regard to cross-border regulations. The firm represents multinational companies, investors, issuers, and investment banks/financial intermediaries in financing transactions, including equity and debt public offerings and cross-border private placements.
The firm is headquartered in Texas; as such it takes pride in its fantastic ethos and focus on wellbeing and maintaining a healthy work/life balance. Its Partners and Associates are involved in business development and are encouraged to be leaders in knowledge management and leading diversity or pro bono initiatives.
One of the key sells of this law firm is that while it pays market rate, it tries incredibly hard to keep away from the ‘BigLaw’ experience – attorneys average 45 to 50-hour weeks and associates are encouraged to fully take their vacation leave and turn off their phones while they are away. Caregiver leave is very generous and the culture is described as ‘kind and considerate, down-to-earth’ and a place where ‘a lot of people have families’.
Candidates must be qualified in New York.
