October 24, 2007

CHICAGO - “ The IVCA is pleased to welcome Horwood Marcus & Berk Chartered (HMB) and representatives James Jerue and Jeffrey Hechtman to our membership.

Horwood Marcus & Berk combines the resources and diversity of a large commercial law practice with the entrepreneurial atmosphere and creativity of a smaller law firm. The firm is committed to producing excellent, cost-effective, timely work for its clients in a sophisticated environment.

Formed in 1975 as a tax boutique, HMB evolved into a business law firm with more than 40 attorneys serving privately held, middle-market clients in areas including finance, mergers and acquisition and general corporate representation.

In private equity, HMB lawyers have represented venture capitalists in many successful fund raisings and have negotiated and documented private equity investments in industries including outsourced business services, telecommunications, information technology, health care and consumer products and services.

HMB frequently works with its clients to grow private equity-backed businesses both organically and through acquisitions and to achieve successful exits from private equity investments. HMB often co-counsels with larger law firms that offer specialized services in areas such as asset securitization, public securities offerings and antitrust.
