Edward H. Ivey Selected as 2023 Southeastern Legal Awards On the Rise Winner
Moore & Van Allen PLLC (MVA) is pleased to announce that Head of Derivatives Edward “Ed” H. Ivey has been selected as one of The Daily Report’s 2023 Southeastern Legal Awards “On the Rise” honorees. Honorees will be presented at a gala in Atlanta on June 22. Also in June, The Daily Report will publish a special report highlighting the accomplishments and skill of this year’s winners.
Previously known as the Georgia Legal Awards, the highly competitive awards program was expanded this year to also include North and South Carolina, Tennessee, Alabama, and Mississippi. The awards celebrate the achievement and excellence of lawyers who have left an indelible mark on the legal community through their unwavering dedication to the profession.
“Ed truly excels in the highly technical and complex derivatives space,” said Co-head of the firm’s Financial Services group Wayne McKinzie. “We applaud him for this deserved recognition and look forward to supporting his ongoing successes on behalf of our clients.”
Ed focuses his practice on swaps, futures and other derivatives, and advising clients on various types of debt and equity capital market activities (e.g., SAFEs, convertible notes, other security private placements, loans and revolving credit facilities). He brings his experience in derivatives, bankruptcy and structured products, to enhance financing through structuring debt, equity and hedging activities, or present alternative financing arrangements that can lower costs and risks to both parties (e.g., warehouse financings, true sales and repos/securities lending arrangements). He helps clients navigate transactional and regulatory matters for registered and non-registered entities to minimize costs and regulatory burdens, with a particular focus on the Commodity Exchange Act, Investment Company Act and Securities Act. He has also helped regional and community banks develop and implement their internal swap programs for borrowers, as well as advising larger registered swap dealers on their day-to-day swap negotiations and regulatory needs.
