    Brenda is a fantastic resource and a pleasure to work with. I have had numerous questions about the intricate nature of securities offerings and Brenda has always been there to help guide me to the answer. Her blogs are also a great resource to utilize for educating issuers about the Going Public process and navigating complexities of securities law.
