Our roots are in entrepreneurial representations that demand flexibility, creativity and practicality. We develop long-term relationships with our clients - often providing counsel while they are still privately owned and then advising them through the IPO process and subsequent financing transactions. Through these relationships, we seek to obtain a deep understanding of each client's business and then to tailor our advice to the particular needs of that client.
