    • For the year ended December 31, 2015, Graubard Miller was tied for sixth based on the number of consummated IPOs in which a U.S. firm acted as counsel for the issuer.  We were also tied for tenth based on the number of consummated IPOs in which a U.S. law firm acted as counsel for either the issuer or the underwriter.  During the ten-year period from January 1, 2004 through December 31, 2013, I was ranked first in the nation in the individual lawyer category of supervising representation of issuers and underwriters in initial public offerings.  This is based on the number of IPOs handled., IPO Vital Signs

    Other Outstanding Achievements:

    • See the Summary Statement, above.  As a result of being one of the inventors of the "SPAC" or "Specified Purpose Acquisition Comapny" way back in 1993, Graubard Miller has handled substantially more SPAC IPOs and business combinations than any other law firm in the world.  Our unparalled SPAC expertise grew again in 2018, during which we represented either the issuer or the underwriter in fifteen of the 44 SPAC IPOs which were consummated (through December 13, 2018), or more than one third of the deals done.  During that time, we represented the underwriter side on more SPAC IPOs than any other law firm.  We were also first in this category in 2017.  We are extremely proud of the fact that SPACs (our "baby") has become an asset class in and of itself and outstrips any other Industrial Classification in the IPO marketplace.
