Practice/Industry Group Overview
The first taste many businesses have of securities law is when they require outside capital -- often from investment banks, venture capitalists or public offerings -- to grow their new or expanding business. The attorneys of Phillips Nizer’s Securities & Private Placement practice have worked with many businesses at this exciting time in their development, to help them understand both the intricacies of such funding deals and the federal and state securities laws that govern them.
Attorneys on our Securities & Private Placement team have years of experience in private and public securities offerings, stock-based mergers and acquisitions, real estate private placement transactions, financings of emerging-growth companies and other corporate finance transactions, as well as securities law compliance counseling of private and public companies, broker/dealers and investment advisors. Further, we can render advice and assistance related to corporate governance practices; periodic reporting (in compliance with SEC, NYSE, NASDAQ and other required public disclosures); proxy solicitations, and broker-dealer and investment advisor regulatory matters.
In order to better understand the businesses of our clients who require Securities & Private Placement counsel, we have developed industry-specific knowledge in a multitude of industries, including banking, biotechnology, entertainment and media, fashion, hospitality, real estate, retail, telecommunications and textiles.
Phillips Nizer continues to be alert to the efficiencies of cost and personnel demanded by growing companies in highly competitive industries. Our lawyers provide securities representation to both issuers and underwriters, and general counseling to clients with regard to their businesses. In addition to providing Securities & Private Placement counsel, Phillips Nizer attorneys in this practice have the experience to counsel clients in all areas of corporate work, ranging from the structure of sophisticated business transactions to day-to-day corporate housekeeping. We have represented many of our clients for decades in all aspects of their businesses, throughout their growth from family or closely-held firms of modest size to large, publicly held or more sophisticatedly capitalized firms.
