We represent emerging public and private companies at all stages of development – from pure startups to mature public and private companies. Our attorneys advise and assist clients organizing corporations, LLCs, partnerships and S-Corporations, organizing their capital structure, raising capital in private placements under Regulation D and public offerings, implementing commercial agreements and joint ventures with strategic partners, implementing and managing stock and other equity-based compensation programs, entering into secured and unsecured loan transactions, acquiring other companies and divesting non-core operations through spin-offs or sales.
Our public offering work includes advising smaller public companies that are eligible to register a class of securities on Form 10-SB or issue securities under Regulation S-B, including through the use of Form SB-2. We also advise private companies regarding "reverse merger" or "reverse-IPO" transactions, including their compliance with the recently expanded disclosure requirements of Form 8-K.
Our attorneys also advise clients and their major stockholders regarding their regulatory compliance obligations under the Securities Act of 1933 and the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, including the filing of periodic reports on Form 10-K, 10-K and 8-K, sales of restricted securities under SEC Rule 144 and compliance with Section 13 and Section 16 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (including Schedule 13D, From 3 and Form 4).
