He is experienced in structuring and negotiating public and private offerings, mergers, and stock and asset acquisitions. Additionally, Jacobson advises public and private companies with respect to corporate governance issues, public disclosures, and securities law compliance, including proxy statements, registration statements, and periodic reports, as well as investors with respect to Section 13 and Section 16 issues.
