Securities Law

Our lawyers also have significant expertise in both registered and exempt offerings, including “PIPE” transactions.  With first-hand institutional knowledge going back to the early 1970’s, we have a deep understanding of the Securities and Exchange Commission’s evolving positions on the registration and resale of “restricted securities" and rendering Rule 144 and Section 4(a)(1) legal opinions regarding the resale of restricted securities.


We represent individuals, issuers, brokers and transfer agents in the preparation and review of legal opinions under Rule 144 and Section 4(a)(1) of the Securities Act of 1933.  Our “due diligence” and proprietary Customer Resale Agreements ensure protection of our clients in these types of transactions by ensuring that sales are tailored to each client's circumstances and are made in “routine trading transactions” that are exempt from the SEC's registration requirements.
