Raising money in either the public or private markets is a demanding and necessary requirement for growing businesses. Field Law provides timely client-focused advice to help clients capitalize on their exciting business opportunities. With experience advising businesses from start-up through to IPO and beyond we provide advice on all matters relating to structuring, financings, corporate governance and regulatory compliance.

Representing clients across a range of industries, Field Law can guide you through domestic, national and international corporate and commercial acquisitions that range from small dollar amounts to large and very complex transactions. We regularly advise bidders and target companies (including boards of directors and special committees) on how to best navigate complex merger and acquisition transactions.

Our broad experience enables us to consistently provide our clients with creative, innovative and cost effective solutions to a variety of situations. We help clients choose the appropriate financing technique, negotiate commercial terms and design and structure transactions that meet your business goals.
