Securities Lawyer for Your IPO or Private Placement
At Whitley LLP Attorneys at Law, one of the most important steps in preparing for an IPO or private placement is getting to know your business from the inside-out. We will collect valuable information about the following details of your company and your offering:
- Products & Services
- Business Plan
- Expected Sources of Funding
When due diligence is complete, our Houston business lawyer will collaborate with you to create the optimal deal structure for your business. Whitley LLP Attorneys at Law will work through any concerns with the underwriters and make necessary revisions prior to the IPO or private placement. We will then prepare a registration statement, offering documents and filings with the SEC (if the company is going public). For private placements, we prepare an in-depth private placement memorandum that tells your company’s story effectively while keeping you in legal compliance.
Regulatory Compliance Is Essential
During an IPO, compliance with Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) rules is essential. If a registration statement is incomplete or misleading, penalties can range from fines to criminal violations. Mistakes during private placements can also result in serious consequences, such as shareholder actions or SEC proceedings.
