Securities & Corporate Governance

Providing capital planning with confidence.

Clients turn to Husch Blackwell for guidance on structuring, negotiating and documenting capital market transactions that are critical to long-term growth. Clients benefit from our thorough understanding of federal and state securities laws and stock exchange listing requirements, as well the ongoing evolution of best practices in corporate governance post Dodd-Frank and Sarbanes-Oxley.

Our team partners with clients in evaluating and crafting solutions to the various transactional and disclosure challenges that can arise during initial public offerings (IPOs), recapitalizations, acquisition and divestiture transactions and private equity investments, as well as more routine capital market transactions and employee offerings.  Our goal is always to help our clients achieve results that meet their business objectives and advance their interests.
