Practice/Industry Group Overview

Our Securities Group advises clients on securities  registration requirements, including those for IPOs and other public offerings; reporting requirements for public companies; other state and federal securities law issues, including those impacting private placements of debt and equity; NASD and stock exchange relations; and mergers, acquisitions and takeovers (offense and defense). Our experience runs the gamut from long-time representation of NASDAQ and NYSE listed companies all the way down to start-up capital formation transactions. We do not view IPOs or general securities issues in isolation from other business law matters. Rather, we deal with securities law issues, including those involved in going public and those involved in the private placement of securities, as an integral part of the legal and business life cycle of a growing company.

Our experience helps us to recognize the key issues, anticipate problems and help assist our clients in devising effective solutions. Each of our senior securities and corporate lawyers has worked together for at least a decade and, in some cases, far longer. The result is that we have a core of seasoned securities lawyers who combine judgment and maturity borne of experience with substantive legal expertise.
