Richa is a partner focusing on corporate and securities transactions. The bulk of Richa’s work involves cross-border corporate transactions, including advising regional centers raising EB-5 capital for U.S. transactions, and supporting early-stage and mid-size companies from other countries to establish a presence in the U.S., through acquisitions, joint ventures or raising capital. Among others, Richa’s clients are in the health care, life sciences and health tech industries.
The bulk of my practice is in cross-border mergers and acquisitions and investments. Companies in other parts of the world are increasingly turning to the US to raise their seed or Series A round of financing or to make smaller acquisitions as part of their entry strategy into the US. A mid-market or early-stage international transaction requires many of the same skills as a larger international transaction, and my practice allows me to use the same skills for mid-market international deals.
Although I have experience in a wide range of industries, my focus areas are life sciences, health care transactions, IT, and impact investment. I also represent regional centers in EB-5 (investor visa) financings and recently represented the issuer in a $125 million EB-5 financing for construction of a stadium.
I am one of the leaders of the firm’s South Asia practice and co-chair of the India Committee of the American Bar Association’s Section of International Law. In addition to representing Indian companies entering the US, I represent clients from other parts of Asia, Europe and Latin America.
We are actively involved in shaping the documentation and strategies around emerging forms of fundraising and investing, such as crowdfunding. I am also able to leverage off the firm’s regulatory depth in order to focus on key concerns in transactions with regulated entities (e.g., health care transactions).
