Notable Representations, Key Contacts
Over the last several years, SPACs have gone mainstream with numerous private equity sponsors raising SPACs and selling portfolio companies to SPACs, as well as, companies combining with SPACs. Transactions involving SPACs present unique challenges (and opportunities), which require experienced counsel. Weil regularly advises:
- SPAC sponsors and underwriters in structuring and raising capital for SPACs
- SPAC sponsors in obtaining forward commitments for SPACs and PIPE investments in connection with acquisitions
- SPACs in acquiring target companies
- Private equity sponsors in selling portfolio companies to SPACs
- Companies combining with SPACs
