For many companies, the end of the development stage is marked by the initial public offering. Getting there, however, requires years of planning and careful corporate structuring. Then, when the markets are receptive, actually accomplishing the IPO may require immediate and rapid action and the undivided attention of your professional advisers, usually led by counsel. We understand IPO’s and have helped many clients through the entire process, from early structuring, pre-IPO planning, negotiating terms with the underwriters, and the IPO itself, as well as the aftermath. Of course, we are also very experienced with all manner of follow-on and secondary equity offerings as well as warrants, straight debt, convertible debt and hybrids.
