Our attorneys are actively engaged in counseling management in corporate and securities laws, issues, and obligations to help our clients position themselves effectively for venture capital, angel, or public financing.
We represent our public clients in preparing annual, quarterly, and other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission and complying with other public reporting requirements on an ongoing basis. We also advise our clients' officers and directors in complying with Section 16, Rule 144, and Sarbanes-Oxley issues.
Working closely with our Mergers & Acquisition Practice, our Securities attorneys regularly assist our clients in buying and selling public companies.

We help structure all forms of securities transactions ranging from public tender offers to post-closing sales of restricted securities of both public and private companies on behalf of our corporate as well as individual clients. Our Securities Practice also provides guidance on corporate governance issues for both public and private companies.
