We act for private companies as they prepare for and navigate through the initial entry into the public markets through IPO or RTO.

We also provide counseling concerning sales of securities by insiders and affiliates, including Rule 10b5-1 programs, Rule 144 compliance, and insider trading guidelines and restrictions.
