Corporate Finance and Capital Markets

McGuireWoods represents some of the nation’s largest businesses and financial institutions in a wide variety of complex corporate and securities matters, including registered public offerings, private placements, exempt offerings, proxy solicitations, tender offers, shelf registrations of debt, equity- and trust-preferred securities, medium-term note programs, sales of debt in European and other foreign markets, and equity-linked securities.

In just the last three years, our corporate finance lawyers served as counsel in public and private securities offerings having an aggregate market value of approximately $50 billion. In fact, the volume and aggregate dollar value of our work in the capital markets has earned McGuireWoods repeated recognition as among top law firms for debt and equity issuances according to Thomson Reuters League Tables. The sophistication of our work has also earned our firm repeated and varied recognition from the International Financial Law Review, from whom we twice received the IFLR Equity Deal of the Year, as well as the IFLR Debt & Equity Linked Deal of the Year.

In the equity-raising arena, we represent corporate issuers and underwriters in IPOs and follow-on offerings. We also regularly represent issuers in offerings of common stock, trust-preferred securities, private placements and Rule 144A/Regulation S offerings. We assist our financial institution clients with the issuance of non-cumulative perpetual preferred stock, which receives capital treatment and helps them meet their capital obligations under various regulatory frameworks.

Our debt work on behalf of public company clients includes investment-grade debt offerings, including senior and junior subordinated note offerings. Our lawyers also assist issuers and guarantors with secured bond issuances.

The depth of our experience enables us to be innovative in meeting client-specific public company financing goals. For example, McGuireWoods assisted with one of the first hybrids issued by a non-financial institution. We also help our public company clients with liability management activities, including tender offers, redemptions and consent solicitations.
