Biography

Margaret Mudd, a member of the firm’s Corporate Services Group, focuses her practice in the areas of mergers and acquisitions, securities and general business matters across a broad range of industries, including the energy industry. Whether working in tandem with a client’s dedicated legal team or directly with entrepreneurs facing a sale process for the first time in their professional lives, Margaret works closely with clients to prioritize their individual goals, timelines and needs. 

Margaret has experience representing buyers and sellers in all aspects of the purchase and sale process, from formulating and presenting an initial proposal through handling post-closing indemnification claims and disputes.  Regardless of the size of the transaction, she strives to understand each client’s unique objectives to maximize the outcome for any given transaction, and she is quick to step up when a client needs additional assistance, whether addressing the concerns of minority shareholders or helping a client work through the pressures of the diligence process. 

In addition, Margaret advises clients on securities issues and has extensive experience helping clients raise funds through private placements of securities. She counsels privately held companies raising funds through debt financing and capital calls and using equity-based compensation for key employees. Her experience with Securities Exchange Act reporting and compliance requirements further bolsters her ability to serve her clients in this space. 

As part of her general corporate practice, Margaret assists clients with entity formations and restructurings as well as the questions that arise in the day-to-day operation of a business.
