Manny Rivera – Fulbright & Jaworski L.L.P.

Practice/Organization Description

I advise a middle-market client base in:

Mergers and acquisitions. I represent public and private companies, particularly in the technology, retail and energy/infrastructure sectors, in evaluating, negotiating and closing complex domestic and cross-border mergers, acquisitions and dispositions and in establishing or restructuring joint ventures.

Corporate finance. I have substantial experience advising U.S. and non-U.S. issuers in public offerings and private placements of equity, debt and convertible securities. I have represented issuers in IPOs, PIPEs, registered directs, at-the-market equity offering programs, Rule 144A offerings, private placements under Regulation D, venture capital financings, international offerings under Regulation S, tender offers and exchange offers. In addition, I have served as company counsel in the negotiation and documentation of credit facilities and other loan agreements.

Securities law compliance and corporate governance. I have guided several dozen U.S. public companies and foreign private issuers in complying with federal securities law periodic reporting requirements, Section 16 requirements for corporate insiders, and new regulations including the JOBS Act, the Dodd-Frank Act and the Sarbanes-Oxley Act. I also counsel public companies regarding New York Stock Exchange and Nasdaq Stock Market listing and corporate governance standards, as well as ISS and institutional investor proxy voting policies. In addition, I have assisted non-U.S. companies in establishing American Depositary Receipt (ADR) programs in the United States.
