Porter Hedges has one of the most sophisticated corporate practices in Texas, with lawyers who have counseled growth-oriented public and private companies ranging in size from New York Stock Exchange-listed companies to start-ups. We advise public and privately held companies on mergers and acquisitions, corporate restructurings, debt and equity financings, cross-border transactions, corporate governance and general corporate matters. We have handled hundreds of public and private offerings of equity and debt securities representing issuers, underwriters and placement agents. We represent private equity and venture capital firms and their respective portfolio companies from their initial portfolio investment, through the tuck-in investments, divestments and recapitalizations, to the portfolio companies' ultimate exit transaction, whether by disposition or public offering. We also represent the corporate trust departments of national banks in their capacity as indenture trustees, collateral agents and cash management banks in various capital market transactions.
We represent clients in industries such as energy, healthcare, manufacturing, distribution, pharmaceutical, environmental, biotechnology, computer technology and oilfield services. We also serve numerous private and public companies as “general counsel,” providing assistance with day-to-day legal, advisory and compliance matters. We are known as an energetic dealmaker and strategic partner for our corporate clients and we regularly handle large, complex and demanding transactions in the U.S. and internationally.
