Areas of Focus

Our Approach

Selecting Mintz as securities counsel is a smart choice for issuers and underwriters alike. For company clients, we help navigate the challenges associated with going public, and life as a public company. Like capital-raising transactions and the complex disclosure requirements involved in public company reporting. Sarbanes-Oxley and Dodd-Frank Act compliance. And corporate governance, shareholder relations, and equity compensation planning. We also provide board- and committee-level counsel and strategic advice. With underwriters, we're regarded as a "go-to" firm because we've earned a reputation for developing creative deal structuring solutions. (Ask us about our track record with reverse mergers and alternative public offerings.) They also appreciate our unified approach to client service, industry-specific due diligence, and commitment to practicality and executing on agreed-upon timelines.
