Practice Highlights

Our attorneys regularly represent both private and publicly held companies in all aspects of compliance with securities laws, including private placement transactions and public financings. We regularly advise our clients about the drafting of such instruments as private placement memoranda and offering prospectuses, as well as the availability and use of the various SEC registration statement forms, such as Forms S-1, S-3, and S-4. We also provide counseling involving regulatory compliance with the reporting requirements under the Securities Act of 1934, including proxy solicitation and regulation, annual shareholder report preparation, SEC periodic reporting pursuant to Forms 10-K, 10-Q, 8-K, and others. We also assist our clients in complying with insider trading regulations, corporate governance requirements, and Sarbanes-Oxley compliance, and advise our clients regarding matters relating to director and officer fiduciary duties, liability, and indemnification.

In addition to compliance, we have assisted numerous clients with the issuance of debt and equity instruments, including initial public offerings and other offerings involving senior and subordinated debt and equity hybrids. We also have assisted clients with mergers and acquisitions of publicly traded companies.
