Steven B.


Nationally recognized as the pre-eminent authority on business development companies (BDCs), Steve Boehm guides his clients in successfully navigating the intricate rules and regulations of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), especially the Investment Company Act of 1940 and its 1980 amendments. Steve and his team represent many of the nation’s largest BDCs, and he advises on a broad range of legal matters and transactions, including initial public offerings (IPOs).

Steve began his career at the SEC, serving in the Enforcement Division and on the Executive Staff, and that insider perspective and knowledge inform his work today. He advises clients on establishing and operating public and private open- and closed-end investment funds, and he also assists clients in developing structural alternatives for taking private equity investment opportunities to public investors. Steve is recognized as a leading authority on the organization and operation of Section 529 college tuition savings plans. He leads the Eversheds Sutherland (US) Capital Markets & Investments Team.
