Public Companies

Griffin also counsels clients on stock exchange rules and the voting policies and practices of proxy advisory firms and large institutional shareholders.

Mergers and Acquisitions

Griffin represents both buyers and sellers, including closely held private companies and publicly traded corporations, in domestic and cross-border transactions that have ranged in size from less than $50 million to greater than $2 billion in total consideration.
