In an era of ever-evolving regulation, Morgan is the constant that clients rely on. Morgan focuses on effectively delivering results when counseling companies on SEC reporting and compliance, corporate governance issues, public offerings, and private placements of debt and equity, ensuring that clients receive cost-effective and high-quality advice. She brings a deep understanding of market trends when negotiating and closing complex business transactions, including mergers and acquisitions.
Morgan is extremely familiar with SEC reporting and compliance obligations, including notoriously complex issues such as the Pay Ratio and areas of increased SEC scrutiny such as disclosing non-GAAP financial measures. She also regularly advises issuers on a broad range of securities matters, including compliance with the Sarbanes-Oxley Act and Dodd-Frank Act, Section 16 reporting, disclosure under Regulation FD, and periodic reporting on Forms 8-K, 10-Q, and 10-K.
Morgan’s experience extends to both public and private companies.
