An initial public offering is a significant event in the life of a company.
We make the effort to thoroughly understand our client's business and the industry in which it operates, as well as our client's goals and objectives in advance of the transaction. This enables us to be more effective in telling the company's story to investors. Preparing to operate in the complex regulatory environment of public companies is critically important to the successful execution of an initial public offering. We work closely with our clients to prepare them and we actively manage the registration process to keep the transaction moving to a successful conclusion.
We also advise public issuers with respect to registered secondary offerings to raise growth capital, registered offerings of securities to be issued to target shareholders in mergers and other acquisition transactions, and registered offerings to employees under employee benefit plans.
