Investor Relations

The investor relations industry is dependent on the successful integration of communications, marketing, and finance. Investor relations policies help outline the various methods and business objectives critical for communicating information to investors and stakeholders alike.

The nature of investor relations policies is often specifically tailored to the unique needs of an individual company. That being said, there remain a host of regulatory stipulations that those involved in this industry must comply with in order to avoid shareholder litigation or enforcement of regulatory penalties.

The attorneys at Barton understand how critical the company-investor relationship is and how susceptible it can be to legal penalties. We want our clients to be able to establish long-term credibility and to develop a loyal shareholder base in the process. To this end, our attorneys offer counsel and guidance on a full range of legal and compliance issues, from securities fraud and risk disclosures, to proper protocols for reporting financial and trading information.
