Securities Law

Hunter Taubman Fischer & Li’s securities lawyers represent clients in a wide variety of securities transactions, providing assistance with capital transactions throughout the client’s growth stages in the capital markets. We represent investment banks, as placement agents or underwriters, as well as domestic and foreign private issuers, in equity and debt offerings.

When financial services, businesses, or market participants need seasoned counsel who are deeply versed in the complexities of the market and the intricacies of its regulation – and can respond on a moment’s notice to meet a client’s challenge – they come to our firm. Our securities attorneys provide clients with a fully integrated set of legal services focused on securities laws and regulations.  We also provide counsel concerning sales of securities by insiders and affiliates, including Rule 10b5-1 programs, Rule 144 compliance, and insider trading guidelines and restrictions.

We regularly represent clients in:

– Initial public offerings (IPOs) and follow-on offerings
– Private investments in public equity securities (PIPEs)
– Registered direct offerings (RDs)
– At-the-market offerings (ATMs)
– SPAC IPOs and business combinations
– Debt issuances, including convertible debt and high-yield debt
– Reverse mergers (RTO)
– Exchange offers
– Going private transactions

We assist private companies as they prepare for and navigate through the initial entry into the public markets through IPO or RTO. Once public, these clients rely on us for advice on SEC reporting requirements, secondary public offerings and other corporate finance matters.
