Transaction Advisory and Public Company

Taking You To Your End Goal

Anchin’s Transaction Advisory and Public Company Services Group address the increasingly complex needs of private companies preparing for an initial public offering (IPO) as well as public companies navigating daunting regulatory and business challenges. Our team of seasoned professionals has years of experience and has worked with many small to mid-market companies to guide them through the complex IPO process, assisting them in the transitions necessary to become a publicly listed firm and helping to avoid costly delays. This expertise and experience coupled with Anchin’s significant in-house resources enables us to offer a uniquely comprehensive service. Additionally, with independence rules and regulatory requirements strengthened, many companies must now employ multiple firms in the pre- and post-IPO process. Anchin has worked seamlessly with other firms and teams of attorneys to bring the process to fruition, and we offer a suite of services that cannot be provided by your audit firm. Anchin was also one of the first firms in the nation to register with the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB).

Anchin’s Transaction Advisory and Public Company Services Group has been designed to offer you seamless service as you move towards an IPO. Working with you from the initial decision to go public, we craft a roadmap that steers you towards a listing on a public exchange. During that process, we leverage our full suite of accounting, tax, financial, and business advisory services on your behalf to ensure that when the deal closes, everything is in place. Whether it’s reviewing your accounting and bookkeeping procedures, implementing an effective internal controls system, or preparing all the necessary SEC filing and documentation, we are able to address any issue that might arise.

Anchin is uniquely distinguished by deep involvement at the partner level. This enables you to reap the benefits of our partners’ years of insight, technical knowledge, and business acumen working with clients as they proceed towards an IPO. We pride ourselves on establishing a close working relationship with you and becoming Your Expert Partner.
