In plain English, a capital markets transaction is an extremely important contract. For a soon-to-be public company, an S-1 is thee most important contract. However, as discussed last week, (read here) there are many types of transactions – across all three main exchanges: OTC Markets, Nasdaq and NYSE.
Total transactions count for the first half of 2014 is 1,249… and all of these transactions needed a law firm – if not two or more. In fact, the 1,249 transactions counted listed 449 different law firms. Below is a graph of the top ten, by transaction count.
We carefully track all capital markets transactions as Vintage executes the drafting sessions for law firms. We have become the intelligent value for transactions: in-house, at a corporate or law office and now more increasing, 100% virtual. You can see an in-house drafting session in this video.
