To prosper, companies must be able to raise money when necessary in a timely and efficient manner, even when sources of capital are tight. Meanwhile, ever-changing laws and regulations require executives to reassess both enterprise and personal risks associated with many of their decisions and activities.

In this environment, businesses value law firms that offer broad investor, lender, underwriter and regulator contacts, extensive corporate finance experience and a thorough understanding of the law. Perkins Coie is such a firm.
