Initial Public Offerings
As part of a capital-raising plan, you may be considering a public financing, either by way of a traditional IPO, a reverse take-over, or RTO or through a merger with a Special Purpose Acquisition Company, or SPAC. With significant experience acting across a broad range of sectors, advising both issuers and underwriters, we have the breadth of experience necessary to anticipate the complex regulatory, tax and intellectual property issues inherent to an IPO, RTO or SPAC transaction.
