“Public companies are subject to an ever-evolving and intensifying regulatory landscape, and failure to keep up with SEC guidance on various business practices can lead to significant enforcement actions against the company as well as the responsible individuals,” said Jay Knight co-editor of the Securities Law Exchange blog. “Securities Law Exchange offers executive leadership and corporate counsel access to regular updates, guidance and best practices on the issues that are essential to meeting their business goals and ensuring compliance along the way.”

Securities Law Exchange focuses on a wide variety of topics including regulation and reporting updates, public company advisory topics, IPO readiness and exchange updates including IPO announcements, M&A trends and deal news. Additionally, the blog will act as a hosting site for resource pieces for public companies, including the recently updated Blueprint for an IPO.

The blog’s roster of authors regularly counsel on the legal and business matters that are essential to executives, boards and corporate counsel. In addition to their law firm experience, many of the attorneys previously served as U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) attorneys, in-house counsel and as company executives, giving them unique insight into the issues that are top-of-mind for public companies.
