Public Offerings

We assist clients in the public offering process using our decades of experience.

  • Represent both issuers and underwriters in public offerings of securities
  • Provide pre-offering planning
  • Represent issuers in preparation and filing of shelf registration statements
  • Provide strategic advice on charter and by-law provisions and board composition, assist clients in making the myriad disclosure judgments required in preparation of the registration statement and guiding the offering through the SEC review process
  • Advise underwriters about market manipulation and related issues through the post-offering "quiet period"

Many clients take advantage of the market listing of their stock by using such securities as acquisition currency. These transactions also entail complex securities law issues. We have significant experience in the SEC’s Form S-3 registration statement process, which provides freely tradable shares to "non-affiliates," in exempt offerings followed by resale registrations and exchange offers.
