Securities and Corporate Governance

Our securities and corporate governance team counsels corporations, private companies, funds, underwriters, and other entities in all types of securities transactions—from private placements and initial public offerings (IPOs) to large-cap public company follow-on offerings and public and private M&A transactions. We work with our clients to structure securities transactions, as well as governance relevant to the transactions. We are adept at handling projects that range from the simple to the highly tailored and complex.

We represent clients in nearly every industry, with a strong focus on the energy, financial services, life sciences, manufacturing, retail, shipping and transportation, software, and technology sectors.

More than 20 of our practitioners are alumni of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) and the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). Our regulatory experience allows us to counsel our clients through ordinary and extraordinary regulatory issues, from routine comments, examinations, and inquiries to novel issues, enforcement actions, and complex requests for regulatory relief.
