Law360 has named Fenwick partner Ran Ben-Tzur a Capital Markets MVP for his excellence in securities law, in its annual Law360 MVP list.
Ran has steered many top tech innovators through major industry-reshaping capital markets transactions. His work this year alone includes guiding Coinbase through its pioneering direct listing on the Nasdaq Global Select Market. Coinbase was the first major crypto company to go public and the first technology company to go public through a direct listing on Nasdaq. It also had the second largest valuation for a technology company at the time of going public ($100 billion). Other transaction highlights include: advising SentinelOne in its $1.4 billion IPO, making it the highest-valued cybersecurity company in history at the time of IPO; Compass in its $450 million IPO, one of the largest real estate technology IPOs ever; and Nextdoor in its acquisition by Khosla Ventures Acquisition Co. II, a SPAC, through which Nextdoor will become a publicly listed company.
Ran provides strategic counseling on a wide range of corporate matters to high-growth private and public technology companies, primarily in the software, social networking, fintech, crypto, internet and mobility spaces. He has extensive experience in capital markets transactions and has represented numerous issuers and underwriters on initial public offerings and other equity and debt offerings, as well as corporate governance, SEC compliance and general corporate matters. Fenwick’s Capital Markets group was named a Capital Markets Practice Group of the Year by Law360 for 2019.
