Reema Kapoor counsels clients in corporate governance, mergers and acquisitions, private placements, equity and debt financings, general business matters, and as outside general counsel. She represents global, national, and regional companies in their critical transactions, appropriately weighing risk, opportunity, and the competitive landscape. Specific areas of practice strength include negotiating and structuring a wide range of agreements: stock and asset purchase, licensing and distribution, manufacturing and supply, master services, software, and shareholder.
My overall goal is to become a trusted team member that my clients can rely on for responsive attention, communication and legal advice. In order to establish such a relationship, with each client I try to understand their goals and the reasons underlying those goals. Through collaboration, we develop a plan of action that will be adjusted and refined as the deal takes shape, the interests of the other parties become known and different objectives are prioritized – all with the aim of closing the transaction successfully.
- My practice focuses on financing (institutional and private equity), equity investments and mergers and acquisitions, across a number of industries, including:
- natural resources
- automobile manufacturing
My clients care about receiving sophisticated legal advice that is responsive, personalized (but objective) and cost-effective. My clients demand excellence, ownership and a solution-oriented approach. Whether in lending or M&A, clients want to maintain a positive relationship with the counterparty to the deal, and, thus a win-win approach is crucial to my clients.
You have a team member in your corner that is trained and experienced with identifying and navigating the legal risks and exposure that may not be readily apparent or immediately foreseeable in a transaction. The information that I can provide, whether it relates to the structuring of the transaction, how to document deal terms and what is or is not “market”, can help my clients make informed decisions.
I enjoy the fact that each deal or transaction that I work on is unique and represents different opportunities to solve complex legal issues in a creative manner. I enjoy meeting new people and learning about the businesses that they have created, invested in or otherwise have a stake in.
