Broadly experienced in public offerings and private placements of securities, Exchange Act compliance, PIPE transactions, angel and venture capital financings, bond finance, and other areas of equity and debt financing, our veteran Securities and Capital Markets Practice Group provides sophisticated, innovative, and market-savvy counsel to NYSE- and NASDAQ-listed companies, emerging companies, underwriters, venture capital firms, and hedge funds.

Ranked among the top firms nationwide in investor-side PIPE transaction volume,* we skillfully handle matters such as proxy statements, 10-Ks and 10-Qs to public offerings, tender offers, exchange offers, and recapitalizations—as well as highly innovative securities transactions such as 100-year-debt and simultaneous issuer-tender offers. We also help our foreign clients with U.S. sales of debt and equity securities.

In addition to representing underwriters and issuers in a range of public securities transactions, we serve as regular outside securities counsel for numerous publicly traded companies.

We also participate nationally and globally in venture capital and angel financing transactions, which have totaled more than $500 million in recent years. We pride ourselves on providing sound guidance to wide-ranging participants at every stage of the financing process.
