Client quoted in Legal 500 US 2022: Education

William Intner has a robust practice in corporate, securities, and general business law, helping companies with their most important strategic transactions and disclosure and governance issues.

While most of his work is focused in the life sciences, health care, and education sectors, his active clients range from large, international corporations to smaller growth companies across many industries, including technology and manufacturing. Having represented companies from their founding through stages of investments, the initial public offering (IPO) process, and ultimate exit transactions, he has a keen understanding of the lifecycle of a company, and how to navigate growth and change.

William's practice is relationship based. Having served in the role of outside general counsel to many of his clients, he understands the importance of having a deep understanding of his clients' business and bringing a practical approach to the table.

In his securities and public advisory practice, William works with clients on their debt and equity offerings (public and private), IPOs, and venture capital financings. In the transactional area, William represents privately and publicly held corporations, private equity investors, and universities in connection with a broad range of corporate and transactional matters, such as mergers, acquisitions, product divestitures, strategic affiliations, joint ventures, and other complex corporate arrangements. In the disclosure and governance area, William provides counsel to public companies on U.S. securities laws, including general disclosure requirements and periodic reporting obligations, as well as on complex governance matters.
