Leading Securities Law Firms Combine to Form Sichenzia Ross Friedman Ference Anslow LLP

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Aug 3, 2011) - Sichenzia Ross Friedman Ference LLP (SRFF) and Anslow + Jaclin (A+J) are pleased to announce that the two firms will combine to form Sichenzia Ross Friedman Ference Anslow LLP ("SRFFA") effective as of September 1, 2011. The transaction brings together two of the leading securities practices in the New York metropolitan area and results in one of the most experienced corporate finance groups in the United States. The combined firms represent over 150 public companies traded on the New York Stock Exchange, the NYSE AMEX, NASDAQ and the OTC BB, as well as a number of FINRA member broker-dealers, and private and institutional investors.

Both the SRFF and A+J practices focus on the needs of public companies, hedge funds, institutional investors, money managers, high net worth individuals, underwriters, placement agents and broker-dealers. Both practices have established prominence in PIPEs (private investment in public equities), venture capital, public offerings, reverse mergers, general corporate and securities law compliance, in addition to SRFF's already established practices in the areas of securities litigation, SEC enforcement defense and broker-dealer regulation. According to data provided by PrivateRaise, a service of DealFlow Media, since 2004 SRFF has continuously been ranked as the top firm in the United States for representing public companies in PIPEs transactions. Further, from 2008 through 2011, SRFF and A+J were ranked as the top two firms by the number of all reverse mergers advised. In 2010, SRFF was also ranked among the top placement agent legal counsel by the number of placements advised.

The addition of the A+J lawyers will bring the total number of attorneys in the SRFFA corporate finance group to 35 and the total number of lawyers firm-wide to 46.

Representatives from both law firms commented that joining of the two firms results in the creation of one of the most prolific securities practices in the United States that can provide clients seeking to go public or that are already public with an unparalleled level of knowledge, expertise and experience with regard to structuring transactions and managing all regulatory reports and filings. The combination has complimentary benefits as well, as the A+J practice will now have access to the well-established litigation practice at SRFF.
