With experience in all aspects of M&A transactions, including the acquisition and disposition of stock and assets, Greg counsels business leaders and in-house legal professionals from the start of a matter to its closing. He handles letters of intent, leads M&A due diligence, and drafts and negotiates definitive asset purchase agreements, stock purchase agreements, and merger agreements.

Greg represents issuers in public and private offerings of debt securities, as well as issuers and investors in initial and late-stage equity financing rounds, and drafts and negotiates underwriting and other securities purchase agreements.
In his regulatory work for clients, Greg assists with continuing reporting requirements under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, including annual (10-K) and quarterly (10-Q) reports, current reports (8-K), proxy statements, and insider beneficial ownership reports. He also ensures public and private companies are compliant with new Dodd-Frank requirements applicable to swaps and other transactions in derivative hedging instruments. Greg advises investment advisory firms on federal and state securities laws, drafts investment advisory agreements, conducts mock SEC audits, and designs compliance programs.
