UNDERSTAND THE PROCESS AND THE VALUE OF GOING PUBLIC.

Many entrepreneurial or growth businesses would benefit from the access to capital and liquidity afforded by becoming publicly traded. However, the traditional Initial Public Offering (IPO) process is often out of reach for most entrepreneurial businesses due to time and cost constraints, as well as the eligibility requirements. There are a number of alternative public offerings options to a traditional IPO, including:

  • Company Registration Statement (“Self IPO”)
  • Reverse Mergers
  • Spin Offs

Synergy Law Group is unique for a boutique law firm, especially one based in the Midwest, in that we have experience not only helping emerging companies from start-up to growth to exit, but we also have experience taking companies public and helping currently public companies navigate their growth options and handle the necessary Securities Exchange Commission filings. We help the leaders of entrepreneurial companies understand their options and challenges when it comes to going public, as well what this process will take and how these options will affect their ability to meet their short and long-term business goals.

EXPLORE ALL YOUR OPTIONS.

We work with business leaders to understand their growth goals and how various funding options, from private to public, can help fuel their growth. We also provide counsel for the stakeholders of going-public firms, aligning their investment needs to those of the business, to help them navigate and align these often-conflicting strategies. For a select number of these businesses, becoming a pubicly traded company is a realistic approach to help meet growth goals while providing needed flexibility of capital, recapitalization, and/or liquidity.

EXPERIENCE WITH ALL ASPECTS OF REPORTING COMPANIES.

Once public, reporting companies require a wide range of services to help them with ongoing required filings with the SEC. Synergy Law Group works with a variety of national businesses, at various phases of growth, to meet their regulatory compliance needs.

UNIQUELY POSITONED TO HELP

If you are looking for greater access to liquidity, to attract a wider range of investors, or simply to gain a better understanding of whether or not being a public company makes sense for your business, contact us for a complimentary initial consultation. We’ll help you assess the available options, so you can choose the right path whether it’s to go public or remain private.

For companies that are already public, Synergy provides cost-effective, experienced help with ongoing filing and compliance – and strategic growth counsel.
