Keeping SPACs on track 

We represent SPACs, sponsor groups, and underwriters throughout the formation, structuring, initial public offering, and identification of an acquisition target, the de-SPAC business combination or wind down of the SPAC. We represent private companies going public through combining with a SPAC.
