Lawrence is a Partner and the Co-Chair of Lucosky Brookman’s Corporate and Securities group. He combines pragmatic problem solving and dedication to deliver strategic advice and counsel to issuers and underwriters in connection with global offerings of securities and mergers and acquisitions.

A persuasive and successful securities attorney, Lawrence is a recognized “deal” attorney in the small and mid-cap market segment. Lawrence believes that practicing in this space is a full contact sport with unique challenges that requires creativity, innovation and a willingness to navigate complex issues in order to produce extraordinary results.

Clients in this space often require more attention especially when participating in their first deal in the public arena. Lawrence prides himself on his responsiveness and believes that sometimes the best ability is availability. Unafraid to get involved in his clients business, Lawrence regularly uses his extensive rolodex to make strategic introductions for his clients when appropriate.

“Lawrence is the best securities attorney in the business. Always working, always available, and always put his clients first. Highly recommend especially to small and rapidly growing public companies looking for an attorney with deep industry relationships and transactional expertise.” – Justin Schrieber, CEO Conversion Labs, Inc. (NASQ CLVB)
