The BSWA team specializes in assisting companies with the completion of the reporting requirements under the Securities Act of 1933.  We have completed S-1s while serving as financial executives within companies and S-1 and Form 10 in an advisory capacity.  Once the initial filing is complete, the BSW team also works on your behalf to assist with the resolution of SEC comment letters and amendments, if required.

BSWA also manages and/or assists companies with the reporting requirements under the Securities Act of 1934.  Our team currently provides these services for ten companies.  If your company is having problems with completing its filing on-time or lacking the in-house expertise, we have an effective solution for you that begins with obtaining an understanding of the issues, then developing the requisite solution.
