Securities Law is a Specialty within a Specialty
Just because a law firm presents itself as a “securities law firm” does not necessarily mean that they know and understand the OTC Marketplace and the technical needs of OTC, Micro, Small and Mid Cap Issuers. Securities law is a broad field and if you intend to prevail as a public issuer or a private company going public, you need a law firm with extensive OTC and Small and Mid Cap market experience.
Many of the nation’s largest law firms employ at least one securities attorney. However, unless they are familiar with the regulations as applied to Small and Mid Cap Issuer, have completed a reverse merger on the OTC Market, PIPE transactions, or taken a private Company public by way of a DPO (direct public offering) through the filing of an S-1 Registration Statement, the client will ultimately waste precious time and money. Worse yet, the client may miss a window of opportunity that may not present itself again.
Our Attorneys Possess a Wide Range of Small and Mid Cap Issuer and OTC Experience.
