Balch & Bingham is actively engaged in the formation of business entities and in advising clients in a wide variety of corporate transactions, corporate financings, and securities law compliance matters. Lawyers in the firm represent clients in all facets of their securities work, including counsel to issuers and underwriters in public offerings of securities, as well as in private placements.

The firm also regularly advises public companies with respect to Securities Exchange Act compliance and reporting responsibilities, listing and maintenance requirements for the New York and American Stock Exchanges and NASDAQ, state law fiduciary responsibilities to shareholders, directors’ and officers’ liability, inquiries from analysts and the financial press, mergers and acquisitions, corporate borrowings and banking relationships, tax matters, executive compensation matters, and general corporate matters. We have advised boards of public corporations in many areas of corporate governance, including designing and implementing anti-takeover measures such as shark repellant charter and by-law provisions, shareholder rights plans and defensive reorganizations and responding to hostile takeover bids, including proxy contests, tender offers and related litigation.
