Jeffrey, a seasoned attorney with extensive experience in the corporate realm, regularly advises public companies in connection with mergers and acquisitions, public and Rule 144A offerings, securities law reporting, securities and corporate compliance, and corporate governance matters. Jeffrey joins Blank Rome from Baker McKenzie where he served on the firm’s Global Securities Steering Committee and, prior thereto, as head of the Securities group at Coudert Brothers LLP.

“We are delighted to have Jeffrey, an accomplished corporate attorney, join our Firm,” said Grant S.

Jeffrey advises clients on a broad range of client matters, including negotiated private company acquisitions and public company mergers, securities law, public offerings and capital markets, Rule 144A offerings, venture capital, and private equity, as well as public company corporate governance, corporate compliance, and ongoing securities law reporting. He has represented both U.S. and foreign issuers and investment banks in private and public equity and debt offerings, as well as foreign governmental instrumentalities in major privatizations.

“We’re thrilled to welcome Jeffrey to Blank Rome,” said Louis M.
