Collaboration with Your Business in Mind
Moye White’s Private Equity and Venture Capital practice integrates various disciplines within the firm to create a pragmatic, cost-effective approach to capital formation and investment. As a front runner in Business and Corporate Law, our diverse team puts your business first. We collaborate with private equity funds, venture capital firms, general partners, managers, and investors concerning fund formation, regulatory compliance, acquisitions, taxation, financings, and divestitures.
Private Equity vs. Venture Capital
At Moye White, our team attorneys have acquired a unique set of skills to aid clients through the often-overwhelming task of raising funds. While private equity and venture capital are tools for growing a private company, there are important differences to complement your business strategy.
We advise clients on a variety of issues related to private equity and venture capital investments, including:
- Debt financing and restructuring transactions
- Development agreements
- Engineering procurement and construction (EPC) contracts
- Equipment purchase agreements
- Federal and state transmission authorities
- Maintenance contracts
- Partnership structuring
- Power purchase agreements
- SEC reporting and compliance
- Stock offerings (private, public)
Representing Public and Private Companies at Every Stage
Moye White represents public and private companies, broker-dealers, and investment advisers, in a wide range of capital market transactions. We work with you to develop strategies to raise capital and prepare private and public offering documents. We counsel early-stage companies on formation issues and securing funds from investors in private offerings. We have significant experience designing and implementing management fee and executive compensation arrangements. Our lawyers assist clients in organizing, operating, and maintaining private investment funds, including buyout, mezzanine, distressed, and venture capital funds.
A Multi-Discipline Approach to Private Equity & Venture Capital Fundraising
Our team represents funds and investors in multiple industries, including club syndications and single-asset investments. We actively work with funds and investors on distressed acquisitions, including targeted transactions pursuant to Section 363 under the United States Bankruptcy Code.
We work with funds regarding capital formation and deployment, commencing with fund constituent documents, offering materials, and securities regulatory compliance through the implementation of subscription facilities and acquisition leverage. Starting at target identification, we perform comprehensive due diligence with respect to:
- Coordinating your diligence team to address quality of earnings
- Real estate
- Intellectual property
- And more
As investments are liquidated, we work to ensure efficient transaction execution and certainty regarding post-sale adjustments and liabilities.
