We have extensive experience in a wide variety of securities transactions.  We represent clients in capital-raising activities ranging from small IPOs and private placements to the very largest public offerings, and we also represent clients in connection with the securities law aspects of merger and acquisition transactions and tender and exchange offers.  We also regularly counsel large and small publicly-held companies on a wide range of securities compliance, 1934 Act reporting and ongoing disclosure matters, including with regard to financial reporting and the requirements of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act and the related SEC and securities exchange rules thereunder.  We also represent public company audit committees, as well as independent directors and other public company committees, in matters involving the federal securities laws.  Additionally, we represent companies in connection with registered spin-offs and split-offs as well as other complex corporate reorganizations.
