We also regularly advise on IPOs, secondary offerings, rights issues, follow-on offerings and private placements, as well as equity-linked transactions. In addition, we draw on team members with specialized experience to counsel our clients on tax issues, corporate governance and regulatory compliance matters associated with equity offerings.
