As co-chair of Cooley’s global capital market practice, I represent issuers and banks in equity, debt and equity-linked capital markets transactions, including IPOs, follow-ons, converts and PIPEs. I have worked on 100+ IPOs or other offerings of debt or equity, including Uber, DocuSign, Stitch Fix, Snap, Atlassian, Livongo, Zscaler and Invitae. I am regularly recognized as a leading capital markets lawyer by publications such as Legal 500 and Chambers USA. In 2019, I was named one of Law360’s Capital Markets MVPs and one of the Top 100 Lawyers in California by the Daily Journal. I have also been recognized by the Daily Journal as one of their 2020 California Lawyer Attorneys of the Year and was previously included on their Top 20 Under 40 list.
