Public Company Advisory

Attorneys in our public company advisory practice are regarded as valuable counselors to public company boards of directors, executive management and in-house legal teams. Currently engaged by more than 35 public companies as primary corporate and securities counsel, we provide legal advice and strategic guidance on matters affecting public companies and their operation in the public markets.

Chambers USA has said of our firm, it “has a wealth of experience advising on private offerings and shareholder activism issues. … Additionally, the firm has extensive expertise in advising public companies on sophisticated corporate and securities matters.” Clients say: “It is a go-to firm for securities matters. The team works hard to not only accomplish transactions but to understand our business and the drivers.” (from Chambers USA 2019) “Their commitment is second to none.” and “They go toe to toe on expertise with New York firms.” (from Chambers USA 2018)  Our firm’s public company advisory attorneys have served as former U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) attorneys, former in-house counsel and as company executives, which gives us unique insight into cutting-edge issues and into the matters that are top-of-mind to our public company clients.
