Greystone assists companies in every stage of their life cycle, from formation to helping them to analyze capitalization structures, employee incentive and stock arrangements, and financing alternatives. We also use our extensive business experience to help clients navigate the difficult road from private company to public company.
For companies that are already public, we advise our clients on a full range of securities law and related matters, including the disclosure and regulatory obligations under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the rules of the national securities exchanges and associations, and the requirements of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act as well as other corporate governance rules. We also provide public company clients with assistance on a wide spectrum of corporate transactional matters such as mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, strategic alliances, securities offerings and other capital-raising activities, and counseling to their boards of directors and committees on corporate governance and other issues.
We also advise clients on the many issues that should be considered when forming a business, such as whether a business should be operated as a proprietorship, a partnership, a limited liability company, or a corporation; whether the client should elect "S" Corporation status; whether subsidiaries should be formed; and the tax, financial and liability ramifications of these decisions.
