Olshan’s Corporate/Securities Group is Tier 1-ranked nationally and in Metropolitan NYC by Best Lawyers, executing a variety of transactions for its broad client base of public and private issuers, investors and underwriters.

Olshan's corporate and securities attorneys advise our clients efficiently and effectively across their corporate needs, representing public and private companies of all sizes, underwriters, venture capital firms, hedge funds, private equity firms, institutions, high net worth individuals and other investors globally. We also counsel boards of directors, special committees and senior management in connection with strategic transactions, compliance or disclosure issues and other sensitive matters.

Our attorneys often serve as “general counsel” to our clients, advising on corporate governance, legal compliance, including SEC regulatory and stock exchange listing requirements, risk management and day-to-day business operations. Our attorneys also structure and negotiate a wide variety of corporate, strategic and financing transactions, including:

  • initial public offerings (IPOs), including SPACs, Regulation A offerings, at-the-market offerings (ATMs), rights offerings, private investments in public equity transactions (PIPEs) and other private placements
  • credit facilities, debt securities offerings and other debt-financing transactions
  • spinoffs, split-ups and tender and exchange offers
  • mergers and acquisitions (including private equity, management buyouts and “going private” transactions, whether negotiated or unsolicited)
  • venture capital financings (including crowdfunding transactions)
  • emerging company matters
  • succession planning
  • joint ventures

Our corporate attorneys routinely collaborate with colleagues, including attorneys in our Tax, Real Estate, Employment, Employee Benefits, Intellectual Property and Bankruptcy & Financial Restructuring practice groups, to address the complex legal issues related to these transactions and to our clients’ daily operations. As our clients operate nationally and internationally, our corporate securities attorneys regularly work with firms throughout and outside the United States to achieve our clients' objectives.

Public Companies

Leveraging our experience in regulatory compliance, corporate governance and federal and state securities law, we serve as general and special counsel for a large and diverse group of companies with securities listed on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), NYSE Amex and Nasdaq markets. Ranging from national and multinational businesses to small and middle-market issuers, our clients depend on us to help them navigate the complexities of Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) reporting requirements, corporate governance guidelines, general disclosure compliance and other related matters.

Privately Held Companies

Our corporate attorneys also represent entrepreneurs and the executive management of closely held companies as they start up, operate and sell or merge their businesses. We frequently serve as general counsel during negotiations with venture capitalists, private equity investors and merger and acquisition candidates, and advise clients regularly with respect to governance matters and their day-to-day business.


We advise private equity investors, venture capitalists, private equity fund sponsors, fundless sponsors, high net worth individuals and other investors in a wide variety of private and public equity and debt transactions.
