Matt Grazier is a corporate partner in Nixon Peabody’s Private Equity & Investment Funds practice group in Los Angeles, California.
I have extensive experience handling a full range of corporate transactions, including acquisitions, dispositions, mergers, leveraged buy-outs, tender offers, reorganizations, and joint ventures. In addition, I counsel clients with venture capital and growth equity financings, and corporate governance and compliance matters.
My focus is primarily on the following industries: information technology, software, consumer-facing health technology, life sciences, medical devices, consumer products, food and beverage, media, energy and aerospace.
I am fortunate to handle significant matters for my clients, and my approach is to efficiently manage all aspects of the deal process while simultaneously allowing my clients the ability to successfully oversee their companies and funds. Serving as a trusted advisor and helping my clients reach successful results is my top priority.
I assist companies and private equity funds in structuring and negotiating a variety of M&A transactions, including stock and asset acquisitions, mergers, tender offers and leveraged buy-outs.
I regularly represent private equity, venture capital and strategic investors as well as health systems in connection with their growth equity investments. In addition, I often sit on the other side of the table and team with my corporate clients to strategically raise capital through a variety of equity and debt financings, including venture capital financings and PIPE transactions.
I act as outside general counsel to many companies and assist those companies with respect to financing strategies, commercial contracts and corporate governance and senior management issues.
High-quality assets should continue to demand higher valuations and competition for those assets will remain fierce. However, I expect that overall valuations in the middle market will flatten a bit with concerns over global economic instability and the anticipated gradual increase of interest rates.
