Locke Lord's Sacramento office serves our existing regional and international clients in the areas of commercial litigation, products liability, environmental litigation, employment counseling and litigation, real estate and construction matters.
The corporate and securities group represents issuers, underwriters, institutional investors, placement agents, and investment companies in their U.S. and international financing activities in a broad range of public and private financing activities. We regularly advise clients in connection with equity and debt financing, including initial public offerings, PIPEs, convertible, exchangeable, and variable-rate debt and preferred stock offerings. In addition to preparation and filing of registration statements, periodic reports and proxy statements, we also negotiate and prepare securities purchase agreements, underwriting agreements/ placement agreements, private placement memorandums, U.S. SEC and FINRA filings, and listing applications, and are often engaged to address significant SEC and FINRA issues with regulators and representatives of the NYSE, AMEX and NASDAQ. We also represent domestic and international clients in a full array of merger and acquisition transactions including mergers, consolidations, stock or asset acquisitions and dispositions, divestitures, leveraged and management buyouts, strategic alliances and joint ventures.
Our litigators serve clients with complex cases in industries ranging from high-technology, consumer products, registered broker-dealers, energy, utilities and retail businesses. We advise clients on all aspects of contractual disputes, intellectual property disputes, creditor's rights, fiduciary duty and securities claims and alleged regulatory violations. We also advise real estate developers, contractors, sureties, subcontractors, vendors, suppliers and insurers, including providing risk management advice and contract review to limit the potential for and/or the extent of any litigation that may arise in the future from the development and construction of residential and commercial properties.
In April 2011, our Sacramento office received the Green Office Award from Hines, an international real estate firm, in honor of Locke Lord's achievement as a green office and the Firm's commitment to a sustainable future.
