Colin's practice focuses on securities transactions, public mergers and acquisitions and general corporate matters.
He offers clients the benefit of his experience in connection with registered equity offerings, convertible and high yield bond offerings and American Depository Receipt (ADR) programs. He has worked on numerous initial public offerings (IPOs), including the ground-breaking IPO of Visa Inc., which was the largest in US history at that time.
Drawing on his understanding of disclosure issues, corporate governance practices, Sarbanes-Oxley and Dodd-Frank compliance, Colin offers authoritative counsel to the boards and audit committees of major public companies.
His formidable knowledge of public companies' obligations under US securities laws also enables him to help his clients with a broad range of compliance issues, such as the preparation of annual, quarterly and periodic reports, proxy statements and SEC no-action letters.
As a partner in White & Case's Emerging Companies Practice, Colin is committed to helping entrepreneurs and start-ups to navigate the complex issues faced by emerging companies, such as convertible note and preferred stock financings.
Clients also benefit from Colin's considerable experience advising on the securities law aspects of Chapter 11 reorganizations. He has been involved, for example, in the Chapter 11 reorganizations conducted by Six Flags, Inc., Visteon Corporation, Mirant Corporation and WCI Communities, Inc. and represented an ad-hoc committee of bondholders in the reorganization of Washington Mutual, Inc.
