Whether navigating complex regulations, structuring and negotiating a deal or simply conducting day-to-day business, public companies are subject to intense scrutiny by regulatory agencies and investors. We assist in all aspects of securities regulation, from ongoing compliance with federal and state securities laws and requirements of the NYSE and other stock exchanges, to handling equity and debt offerings and transactional projects involving securities across a broad spectrum of structures.

We are experienced in a wide variety of complex issues involved with public and private offerings of securities, including the special requirements imposed by the Sarbanes-Oxley Act and its progeny, as well as with the broad range of more routine securities matters that arise in the ordinary operations of substantial business enterprises. In addition to securities offerings, we represent clients in major business combinations involving securities, including spin-offs, roll-up transactions, proxy contests, leveraged buy-outs, friendly and hostile tender offers, going-private transactions and anti-takeover planning.
