Professional Counsel And Facilitation For Securities Transactions
Whether your company is engaging in an IPO, follow-on offering, private offering, buying securities or otherwise engaging in a securities transaction, it will be subject to countless and ever-evolving rules and regulations. While these rules are intended to shield investors from fraudulent activity, the complexities surrounding compliance with the federal and state securities laws are extremely difficult to navigate and absolutely require the assistance of seasoned professionals.
On the federal level, the Securities Act of 1933 (“Securities Act”) requires that every offer and sale of securities either be registered with the SEC or exempt from registration. Moreover, unless specifically preempted by the Securities Act, every offer and sale of securities must also comply with state law. To add to the complexity, every state has different securities rules and regulations. Failure to comply with either the federal or state securities laws carries stringent punishments and penalties.
When companies need help with securities regulatory guidance, our lawyers at Anthony L.G., PLLC, offer experienced and educated counsel. We help companies across the United States and foreign companies offering securities in the United States to successfully navigate complex securities laws while maintaining a focus on real-world business matters and problem-solving with a focus on success.
For those companies that are already public, we are a go-to firm to help with your interim reports on Forms 8-K and 6-K, quarterly reports on Form 10-Q and annual reports on Forms 10-K and 20-F. We also provide all legal work necessary to complete your annual meetings and shareholder consents in compliance with the federal proxy rules and local state corporate law.
