Partner Jason Kropp has been named to M&A Advisor’s 2014 “40 Under 40” list, a global recognition honoring leading dealmakers, legal advisors and others in the mergers and acquisitions, financing and turnaround markets. Winners were selected by an independent judging panel to recognize recent professional accomplishments and industry involvement.
“It is our belief that this group of accomplished men and women will have a significant effect on the advancement of our industry,” said David Fergusson, President of M&A Advisor.
Kropp has represented issuers and underwriters in dozens of capital markets financings, including recent offerings by Intercept Pharmaceuticals, Epizyme, Demandware and Endurance International Group. He advised Kiva Systems in its $775 million acquisition by Amazon.com, General Catalyst in its sale of portfolio company Locu to GoDaddy, and ABRY Partners in its acquisition of NSM Insurance. Kropp also recently advised a global institutional investor in a $112 million preferred stock financing of One Kings Lane.
Kropp represents numerous emerging and venture-backed companies, and several venture capital and growth equity investors, in financing and other strategic matters. He also counsels public companies on federal securities reporting, disclosure requirements and corporate governance issues.
On Tuesday, June 24, M&A Advisor will host a black tie Awards Gala for honorees at the Roosevelt Hotel in Manhattan.
