Experience 

  • We counsel more than 30 public companies in periodic reporting with the SEC and in day-to-day securities disclosure matters.

We have handled more than $8 billion in public and private debt and preferred securities offerings, significant restructuring, and a substantial increase to more than $6 billion in the company's revolving credit facilities. We also handled the securitization of $5 billion of PECO's stranded costs, which at the time was the largest U.S. asset securitization. Our attorneys established commercial paper programs, negotiated derivative transactions, and developed a process for SEC compliance for all of Exelon's reporting companies.
