Faegre & Benson LLP recently represented Englewood-based Adam Aircraft in obtaining a $105 million secured credit and private equity financing, marking the second private equity financing of more than $100 million handled by the firm this month for a Colorado company.
Faegre & Benson's position at the forefront of the state's largest venture capital deals—and some of the largest of their kind in the United States—secures the firm's standing as the leading corporate law firm for emerging-growth companies.
Earlier this month, Faegre & Benson represented FreeWave Technologies in a $113 million private equity financing, the largest venture capital investment in a Boulder company since 2000. In 2006, Faegre & Benson represented Adam Aircraft in the $93 million venture capital financing that stands as the largest such deal in Colorado that year.
The Faegre & Benson team on the recent Adam Aircraft transaction was led by James H. Carroll, a partner in the firm's corporate practice and included paralegal Maura M. Coffin.
