“Fast-turns” and “spot-on execution” resonating with law firms as fundamental for executing middle market issuer transactions
NEW YORK, February 2, 2016 / PR Newswire / — In 2015, 70% of the Top 10 law firms that specialize in the SEC transactions required by the Securities Act Of 1933, worked with Vintage, the capital markets, corporate services and institutional & mutual fund services division of PR Newswire. These filings, including IPOs, secondary offerings and Regulation A+ registrations, are very complex legal documents that require an immaculate attention to detail and extensive expertise in financial publishing.

“In 2015, Vintage clearly established ourselves as a top solution for law firms and their clients, particularly for issuers positioned in the middle market,” said Liam Power, President of Vintage. “Clients experienced our promise of delivering ‘fast-turns’ and ‘spot-on execution’ regardless of the scale of the work or the size of the company.
I’m proud to say that, judging by the direct feedback from our clients, Vintage is on mission and we continue our measurable expansion into larger and more complex deals. Unique in the industry, Vintage continues to deliver speed, quality and value without sacrificing any one attribute for another,” finished Power.
The capstone of Vintage capital markets group is its IPO and transaction drafting sessions. The company has defined three models for these sessions, based on the flexibility and budget the client requires and not a one-size-fits-all approach.
- Vintage office location: a traditional session model
- Client-selected location: minimum travel and billable hours while allowing senior executives to keep abreast of their daily workload
- 100% virtual: the most cost and time efficient alternative
Securities law firms, like Sichenzia Ross Friedman Ference LLP, work with Vintage and the process that best suits their own issuer clients’ needs.
“We are very pleased to be recognized, for the second year in a row, as the 12th most active law firm in the United States for transactions involving public offerings,” said Gregory Sichenzia, Partner, Sichenzia Ross Friedman Ference LLP. “These rankings reflect the strong position that we have been able to maintain in the market. We thank our friends at Vintage for their help and support.”
Absolute cost transparency is a hallmark of the Vintage approach, and a key part of their ability to deliver value to our client, presenting pricing simply, clearly and to the level of detail that matters to clients. In fact, Vintage pioneered the concept of open, up-front and transparent pricing.
“Once again, our presence on this Top 30 securities lawyer list clearly illustrates the dedication and smart decisions our partners and associates execute for our clients,” said Gregg E. Jaclin, Esq., Partner from Szaferman Lakind Blumstein & Blader, PC. “One key decision we assist our clients with is resource selection and we have found that Vintage compliments both our processes and our clients’ requirements.”
In addition to capital markets practice group that works with law firms, investment banks and M&A deal-drivers, Vintage also supports two other practice groups:
- Corporate Services, which supports public companies with compliance and investor relations solutions
- Institutional & Fund Services for investment management and mutual fund organizations
Vintage is headquartered in New York City with regional sales and service offices throughout the US and internationally.
