Mandelbaum Salsburg launches new securities practice

By Lene Powell, J.D.

Mandelbaum Salsburg has added a new Securities Law Practice Group. Partner and Group Chair Vincent McGill and Counsel Mark Orenstein will advise on securities transactions and securities-related matters, including public offerings and private placements of equity and debt offerings.

The practice launch comes ahead of an expansion of the firm’s New York office, which will be announced in the coming weeks. The firm has 70 attorneys in New York, New Jersey, and Florida.

Vincent McGill has wide-ranging experience in corporate and securities law, with a focus on corporate finance. He has represented underwriters, placement agents and finders in public offerings and private placements, leveraged buyouts, reverse mergers and SPACs, and the design of tax sensitive partnerships and LLCs including REITs.

Mark Orenstein began his career at the SEC Division of Corporation Finance and has over 40 years of experience in structuring, negotiating and documenting sophisticated corporate transactions, including public offerings and private placements for foreign and domestic issuers, mergers and acquisitions, and compliance.

McGill and Orenstein joined from Eaton VanWinkle in New York, where McGill was managing partner.
