Vedder Price Opens San Francisco Office

Vedder Price is pleased to announce its entry into the California market with an office in San Francisco.

The firm’s California presence is centered on strengths in employment law and finance. It follows an extensive market analysis of potential office locations that best suit the firm’s existing client-base, while supporting the firm’s strategic plan for growth.

Three shareholders have joined Vedder Price to launch the new office and lead the firm’s expansion into California.

Mr. Crawford has extensive experience managing debt and equity financing transactions for insurance companies, mezzanine funds and commercial finance lenders, as well as issuers and borrowers. He has a strong background in traditional private placement financings, loan restructurings, and secured and unsecured syndicated bank financings in conjunction with tender offers, buyouts and other acquisitions.
