We are a full service, general practice law firm. With a global presence, Turner Silverman and Cohen have extensive knowledge and experience providing high- quality level of representation demanded by public companies and other market participants. The attorneys at Turner Silverman and Cohen routinely advise clients on securities issues specific to public companies and assist with preparing and filing registration statements, proxy statements, annual, quarterly and current reports and other SEC filings as well as private placement memoranda and related private offering materials and the equivalent documents in the United States, UK and Asian markets.
We also understand the difference between simply assisting our clients to draft offering and disclosure documents and helping guide them to opportunities, investors and relationships; thus, we can leverage our industry knowledge and contacts with underwriters, investment banks, hedge funds and PIPE funds to identify possible partners who can help our clients grow their businesses in an efficient manner.
Our significant experience in representing issuers, underwriters, investment banks and investors in public and private offerings allows us to better understand market expectations, the interests of the parties to these transactions, the business needs of our clients and the need for efficient execution and speed to market.
Compliance with, or meeting requirement for exemptions from, federal and state securities laws is not only the principal focus of public and private offerings of securities, but can also be an important element in many other business transactions, including mergers and acquisitions, tender offers and the formation of new ventures, including corporations, partnerships, limited liability companies and joint ventures.
We have seasoned securities practitioners in many of our offices, affording our clients access to lawyers and their securities experience in local and regional markets, as well as access to extensive industry knowledge that only a large, international law firm can provide.
Having been established for over 12 years Turner Silverman and Cohen have built on the extensive knowledge of our founding partners to give clients support and expert advice on major business transactions and complex issues from a legal perspective. Having built a reputation as leaders in Mergers & Acquisitions, Private equity, venture capital and Securities law, both in New York and internationally, we focus on medium to large scale transactions, including acquisitions, public takeovers and company restructuring as well as company sales. Here at Turner Silverman and Cohen, even for the most complex projects you can rest assured that you will receive extensive support and expert advice from an experienced, international team, with a proven track record.
