His capital raising experience includes private placement securities transactions under Rule 144A, Regulation S, Regulation D and other relevant Securities Act exemptions.

Steeped in such matters, Ted is well positioned to help his clients achieve their legal and business objectives in varied ways, including drafting and reviewing credit and other commercial agreements, amending existing loan facilities, and buying and selling loans in the secondary market using LSTA, LMA or other documentation.

His portfolio of clients represented over the years is as extensive as it is diverse, and includes individuals, early-stage and middle market companies, investment funds, asset managers, investment advisers, global banks and other financial institutions, founders, boards of directors, human resources departments, contractors and other key stakeholders and corporate constituencies in various roles (such as issuer, underwriter, initial purchaser, credit support provider, cash managers, investor, trustee and structuring agent) and industry sectors (including financial services, real estate, e-commerce, energy, social media, life sciences, distributed ledger, health care, restaurant service, medical devices, robotics, artificial intelligence and general professional services).
