Lowenstein Sandler has earned top rankings in two league tables for its representation of placement agents in Private Investments in Public Equity and Registered Direct (PIPE/RD) transactions during the first three quarters of 2010.

PlacementTracker and PrivateRaise both rank the firm's Specialty Finance Group second in the nation among law firms for the number of PIPE/RD transactions it handled on behalf of placement agents from January to September 2010. Lowenstein Sandler advised placement agents in 22 deals totaling $280 million during the nine-month period. The firm also is recognized in the league tables for its representation of investors in PIPE/RD transactions.

"We are very pleased with our Group's performance during the first three quarters of this year, particularly given the continued challenges of the financial markets," said Steven Siesser, chairman of the Specialty Finance Group.
