The Middle Market and Small Business Committee serves corporate and transactional lawyers who counsel small and mid-sized enterprises controlled by families, entrepreneurs, PEGs or VC firms, and smaller publicly-held companies.
- We provide a forum for sharing information, delivering continuing legal education, and addressing the practical issues of counseling small and mid-sized clients.
- We focus on the entire business "life cycle" of our clients, including (i) entity organization and owner agreements; (ii) capital formation, financing and strategic partnering; (iii) employment and compensation matters; (iv) intellectual property protection; (v) corporate governance; (vi) securities law compliance; (vii) international expansion and cross-border transactions; and (viii) business combinations, restructurings, and breakups.
- We have long been an advocate before the SEC, the IRS and other regulatory agencies of reforms to address the special problems confronted by small businesses, including smaller public companies.
- Our Private Placement Broker Task Force advocates a simplified registration system for finders of financing for early stage companies.
