Investment bank clients
We represent national and global investment banks as underwriters in securities offerings of all types. We work with investment banks to assist their issuer clients in the structuring and execution of capital markets transactions. Many of those investment banks look to us for counsel because of our deep industry experience; the depth and breadth of our securities practice; and the trust we have built over time to provide outstanding advice, service and know-how. We engage in a large number of transactions for investment banks in the financial services, real estate, technology and healthcare industries.

In connection with those transactions, we regularly deal with matters before the Securities and Exchange Commission, and we are focused on working with securities and market regulators to produce fair outcomes for our clients.
We also advise our public company clients on compliance issues, such as ongoing public reporting issues, on assessing and developing disclosure controls and procedures, and we advise boards and committees with respect to corporate governance issues.
