We are recognized as one of the leading firms advising on initial public offerings. The depth of our capital markets experience, combined with our expertise in some of the most active industries for offerings, makes us a resource for issuers transitioning to public ownership. We help management and boards of directors anticipate potential structuring, accounting and regulatory issues; plan their company's financing strategy several steps beyond the IPO; structure intercompany relationships; adopt new charters; address tax concerns; develop new compensation arrangements; advise officers and directors on monetization of their restricted stock holdings; and, of course, draft disclosure. We also help underwriters advise their clients on these matters.
Our public companies group provides guidance to officers and boards on the requirements of public ownership and advises clients on periodic reporting matters. We offer our public company clients a team of attorneys with the capability to handle legal issues in any area they face, including mergers and acquisitions, tax matters, intellectual property, employee benefits and employment matters, and litigation.
