Media Taps Ruskin Moscou Faltischek Attorneys for Their Expertise on Initial Public Offerings

Business Press Features Comments from Adam Silvers and Steven Kuperschmid

Uniondale, New York – May 31, 2017 – Two partners from Ruskin Moscou Faltischek P.C., one of the region’s leading providers of innovative business-centric legal services, were quoted recently in prominent business publications for their expertise in Initial Public Offerings (IPOs).  Managing Partner Adam Silvers and Corporate and Securities Department Co- Chair Steven Kuperschmid were interviewed on the resurgence of IPOs and the challenges involved in conducting a successful offering.

The articles, which appeared in the widely read Bloomberg Accounting Policy and Practice Report and Long Island Business News, cited statistics showing an increase in the IPO market and how companies are turning to experienced business consultants, such as Ruskin Moscou Faltischek P.C., for guidance and support. The firm believes that these partners were interviewed by these publications due to their extensive knowledge and experience in capital market transactions as well as recent public offering transactions.

In the April 14 issue of Long Island Business News, Mr. Silvers reflected on how regulations under Sarbanes Oxley “put a lot of legal and accounting burdens on small public companies” which increased the cost of going public.  Small firms are less likely to seek to go public because of the significant costs of those requirements, said Mr. Silvers.  The article can be found at (LINK).

Mr. Silvers, who regularly counsels both private and publicly traded companies on a variety of legal issues, is a member of the firm’s Corporate and Securities Department and chairs the firm’s Technology Practice Group.  Mr. Silvers founded the CFO Roundtable, a by-invitation-only monthly gathering of chief financial officers from Long Island’s leading private companies, who meet to share best practices and discuss mutual business issues.

In the April 24 issue of Bloomberg Accounting Policy and Practice Report, Mr. Kuperschmid discusses accounting rules related to IPOs, including the “subjective judgements that management must make and the audit committee must make and the auditors must sign off on in connection with preparation of financial statements.”  The article can be found at (LINK).

Mr. Kuperschmid is Co-Chair of the firm’s Corporate and Securities Department.  He typically represents entrepreneurs, family businesses, and publicly traded and privately owned institutional companies and private equity funds. Although he has worked with a broad variety of industries, he is particularly experienced in technology, industrials, chemical, pharma, health care, veterinary, financial services, fashion, retail, construction, food and beverage, restaurants manufacturing and distribution .
