Corporate Law Group
Sichenzia Ross Ference LLP’S Corporate Law Practice Group has significant transactional experience in financing transactions, mergers and acquisitions, venture capital and private equity fund transactions, as well as in the restructuring of public and private companies. The members of this Practice Group are recognized for their experience and innovation in business transactions and corporate governance.
Our attorneys have significant experience representing entrepreneurs and emerging private companies through the complex landscape of preparing for and becoming publicly-held and listed, as well as representing publicly-held companies in all aspects of their ongoing businesses. We understand that small to mid-sized public companies are subject to increased regulatory and reporting obligations. We provide our clients with reporting systems and procedures that allow them to focus on their business operations.
Several of our attorneys have previously served as staff members for the SEC, as well as General Counsels for NYSE-listed, Nasdaq-listed and other publicly-traded companies. These experiences provide us with a unique perspective and invaluable qualification in guiding our clients through the regulatory requirements of federal and state corporate laws. The diversified corporate background of our attorneys includes not only the focus of securities law, but also experience with entertainment, sports and trademark law matters. Sichenzia Ross Ference LLP is acknowledged for legal excellence, industry expertise and a strong commitment to client services.
