NEW YORK, Jan. 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- In 2014, 80% of the Top 30 law firms that specialize in the SEC transactions required by the Securities Act of 1933, worked with Vintage, the capital markets, corporate services and institutional & mutual fund services division of PR Newswire. These filings, including IPO and secondary offering registrations, are very complex legal documents that require an immaculate attention to detail and extensive expertise in financial publishing.
"2014 was a watershed year for Vintage, particularly for our capital markets team. I could not be more pleased about this accomplishment," said Liam Power, President of Vintage. "We began the year with a systemic evaluation of everything we do – our technologies, our processes, our people and even our brand. Subsequently, the decisions we've made brought a focus onto what matters most to our clientele. 2014's results validate our success becoming the industry's intelligent value," finished Power.
The capstone of Vintage's capital markets group is its IPO and transaction drafting sessions. The company has defined three models for these sessions, based on the flexibility and budget the client requires and not a one-size-fits-all approach.
- Vintage office location: a traditional session model
- Client-selected location: minimum travel and billable hours while allowing senior executives to keep abreast of their daily workload
- 100% virtual: the most cost- and time-efficient alternative

Securities law firms, like Sichenzia Ross Friedman Ference LLP, work with Vintage and the process that best suits their own issuer clients' needs.
"We are very pleased to be recognized as the 12th most active law firm in the United States for transactions involving public offerings in 2014," said Gregory Sichenzia, Partner, Sichenzia Ross Friedman Ference LLP. "It is an outstanding accomplishment and we thank our friends at Vintage for their help and support during the year."
Absolute cost transparency is a hallmark of the Vintage approach, and a key part of their ability to deliver value to our client, presenting pricing simply, clearly and to the level of detail that matters to clients. In fact, Vintage pioneered the concept of open, up-front, and transparent pricing.
"I believe that our presence on this Top 30 securities lawyer list is a testament to the hard work and smart decisions our partners and associates make on behalf of our clients," said Gregg E. Jaclin, Esq., Partner from Szaferman Lakind Blumstein & Blader, PC. "Certainly, one key decision we assist our clients with is resource selection and we have found that Vintage complements both our processes and our clients' requirements."
In addition to the capital markets practice group that works with law firms, investment banks and M&A deal-drivers, Vintage also supports two other practice groups:
- Corporate Services, which supports public companies with compliance and investor relations solutions
- Institutional & Fund Services for investment management and mutual fund organizations
Vintage is headquartered in New York City with regional sales and service offices through the US and internationally within PR Newswire and Canada Newswire (CNW) offices.
