Stephen M. Honig practices a broad spectrum of business law, with emphasis on corporate law, securities law and mergers and acquisitions. He has great depth of experience in forming, building, reorganizing and advising on the governance of private companies and public companies and M&A transactions for public and private buyers and sellers both in the United States and globally. His approach to transactions is to focus on bringing value to his clients, minimizing unnecessary costs and time in protracted negotiations in areas which are not adding value to the client.

Mr. Honig has taught securities law and regularly lectures and writes on governance issues, shareholder disputes, middle market antitrust issues, securities law regulation, Sarbanes-Oxley, and the representation of senior executives engaged in establishing compensation regimes in both public and private company settings. Mr. Honig is a member of the National Association of Corporate Directors, the Securities Law Committees of the Boston and Massachusetts Bar Associations, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Enterprise Forum. He is the regular securities law columnist for In-House (the Lawyers Weekly publication directed to in-house attorneys).
