We advise public and private companies regarding compliance with federal and state securities laws and assist our clients in the preparation of private and public offerings of equity and debt securities.  Our decades of interaction within business and finance enable us to advise our clients on the financial aspects of proposed financing and to connect you to potential funding sources, including investment banks, placement agents, individual investors, and other “players” in the industry.

Our firm provides services to both issuers and placement agents in:

  • Private placements of debt and equity securities
