Our securities practice encompasses both a wide range of transactional work and ongoing advice to public companies, investment banking firms, venture capital investors, and institutional and individual stockholders on the panoply of regulations with which they must comply under the federal securities laws.

On the transactional side, our attorneys have experience with venture capital and privately placed equity financings for emerging companies; IPOs and follow-on offerings; private investment in public equity (PIPE) transactions; corporate acquisitions involving registered and restricted stock; and “going private” transactions.

In the securities compliance arena, we assist our clients in fulfilling their ongoing obligations under the SEC's periodic reporting system; managing sensitive disclosure issues internally and with industry analysts; preparing proxy statements and handling stockholder meetings; effecting resales of securities in the public trading markets under the SEC's Rule 144; and advising boards of directors concerning the requirements and restrictions imposed on their actions by the securities laws.

Our objective is to provide our clients with advice and representation that is both expert and practical. We strive to render first-rate legal services that solve problems and "get the deal done" at a reasonable cost.
