We provide clients with sophisticated, hands-on counsel to navigate the complex and constantly changing rules for accessing public capital markets and acquiring businesses for public companies.
Raising capital is complicated.
Every geography and financial instrument follows its own regulatory requirements. Using our connections with the SEC, stock exchanges and businesses, we help clients with all aspects of securities law and corporate finance—in diverse industries and markets, both U.S. and international.
Our attorneys have the connections and know-how to help with all our clients’ needs: launching public offerings and private placements; equity, debt or convertible securities financing; going-private transactions; and advice on corporate governance issues, securities compliance or disclosure matters.
As leaders in providing proactive securities insights and counsel, we take a unique, team-oriented approach to serving client issuers, investors, underwriters and investment banks. Based in D.C. and NYC, the team is very closely connected to the activities of the regulatory authorities and exchanges. Our clients know what to expect and how to react.
We are lead counsel on public offerings (including offerings under Rule 144A and Regulation S) and work on hundreds of private placements raising billions of dollars.
