An initial public offering, or IPO, is usually more than just a financing or investment exit. It is also the beginning of new challenges and opportunities that may prove to be especially rewarding over the long-term for a company and its shareholders.
This transformation is both a complex and significant undertaking requiring the advice of experienced legal counselors. Attorneys from McDermott have recently published The IPO and Public Company Primer: A Practical Guide to Going Public, Raising Capital and Life as a Public Company. Co-authored by McDermott partners David Cifrino, Tom Conaghan and Tom Murphy, this 350-page guide provides detailed information about the IPO process, including the significant changes to the IPO process made by the Jumpstart our Business Startups (JOBS) Act, and being a public company.
Representing shareholders in IPOs and helping companies meet the demands of being publicly held, McDermott is uniquely qualified to guide a company through the IPO process. Our attorneys have considerable experience in the U.S. and in Europe representing private equity, venture capital and other investors as sponsors or selling shareholders in IPOs and other public offerings.
