About Mark J. Reyes

Mark Reyes takes a comprehensive approach to serving his clients. For public and private companies and their investors, he acts as a single point of contact for a wide range of corporate and securities issues. Mark helps his clients execute a variety of complex transactions, including capital markets and other securities transactions, mergers and acquisitions (M&A), and joint ventures. He also helps them navigate securities law compliance-, disclosure- and corporate governance-related matters.

Realizing value from long-term relationships

For middle-market companies across a range of industries — manufacturing, banking, hospitality and financial services included — Mark develops a deep understanding of his clients and the industries in which they operate, which helps him better understand the challenges that his clients encounter. Toward that end, Mark builds relationships across various levels of client organizations, working with members of senior management as well as legal, compliance, finance and accounting departments. Knowing his clients' motivations and risk tolerance on any given matter allows him to provide tailored solutions. Wherever necessary, he takes creative approaches, mindful that there is not a "one‑size‑fits‑all" answer across clients.

Mark helps public companies and their investors with capital markets and other complex securities transactions, including initial public offerings and other public offerings, private placements of equity and debt securities, and private investments in public equity and tender offers, and advises them on securities law compliance-, disclosure-, corporate governance- and executive compensation-related matters. Mark also helps investors address a variety of issues that arise from investments in public companies, such as liquidity considerations, restrictions on transferability and public disclosure obligations.

Mark is also active in private company M&A, where he has developed a particular focus on mergers, acquisitions, investments and joint ventures for clients in the veterinary medicine and pet care spaces.
