We have extensive experience in cases ranging from securities litigation, collection matters, employment matters and customer disputes as well as SEC and FINRA investigations and enforcement actions.
Our corporate practice assists clients in addressing the paramount challenges faced across a broad array of industry sectors in the areas of private equity and debt, venture capital, corporate securities, private offerings and hedge funds, joint ventures and mergers and acquisitions. We advise businesses and entrepreneurs in complex securities transactions, drafting private placement memoranda, financing agreements, partnerships, joint ventures, alliance transactions, stock options and warrants and key employee compensation and agreements (grants, profit interests).
Evans & Kob was built on the foundation of client service through hands-on, practical experience. We endeavor to serve as a strategic partner to our clients by providing cost-effective and superior legal services, understanding our clients’ business and challenges and leveraging our unique experience to fulfill our clients’ objectives. Our practice is built on the understanding that the law is the means to realize our clients’ objectives, but its practice requires an intimate understanding of our clients’ businesses and industries.
