Skilled, practical, proactive, and cost-effective, Maslon's seasoned securities attorneys identify lurking problems before they become roadblocks to your successful public offering. We've artfully guided clients through sophisticated equity and debt offerings, ranging from less than $10 million to more than $350 million. And we can help you prepare for a lucrative IPO in the years ahead by avoiding pitfalls hidden in poorly structured private financing transactions.
We tailor the right vehicle for your situation, recognizing that IPOs don't fit everyone. In fact, we've helped numerous privately held businesses go public without the usual time and expense of an IPO. For example, by employing a "reverse merger," we can merge the private business into a dormant public company with sizeable cash reserves and give the private business a controlling interest in the merged company. Our innovative and comprehensive solutions encompass tax, IP, regulatory compliance, and other critical issues.
We're particularly adept in navigating the intricacies of SEC and Sarbanes-Oxley compliance and reporting required of public companies. In addition, We help our clients manage the complex relationship between such rules and their stock-based compensation plans.
