Tifarah Allen is a resource to public companies and private equity fund sponsors for their diverse and complex securities needs.

Tifarah's public company clients depend on her for their varied securities matters, including securities offerings, SEC disclosures, stockholder meetings, Section 16 matters, and ongoing corporate governance advice. With a particular focus on real estate investment trusts (REITs) and companies in the real estate industry, Tifarah's flexible, but focused, approach has helped companies access the capital markets by navigating the initial public offering process, securities exchange listings and compliance, and meeting ongoing capital needs through follow-on equity offerings. 

Tifarah also has extensive experience advising public and private companies across industries and sovereigns on the issuance of debt in public and private offerings. She proactively identifies the needs of her clients to negotiate debt terms that the company can comply with not only today, but also through the maturity of the debt.

In addition to her public company advisory practice, Tifarah leverages her securities law experience to advise fund sponsors in structuring and raising capital for real estate private equity funds.

Prior to joining Hogan Lovells in 2011, Tifarah began her career at a national law firm as a junior associate working on securities, mergers and acquisitions, and general corporate matters. While in law school, she was an articles editor for the Columbia Law School Journal of Gender and Law. Prior to law school, she worked for a major internet retailer and an international commercial bank on internet-based consumer products.
