His practice emphasizes a wide range of financial transactions, including U.S. and international public and private offerings of debt and equity, Rule 144A placements, Regulation S cross-border offerings, MJDS offerings, listing companies on U.S. exchanges, tender and exchange offers, mergers, and acquisitions. Mr. Lander’s practice includes providing corporate governance and other advice to a wide variety of corporations and financial institutions. He also devotes a significant part of his practice to regulatory matters for U.S. and international securities brokerage firms, investment advisers and hedge funds advising on their registration, structuring, documentation, compliance, business activities and significant transactions.
Mr. Lander is the author of four books on securities law: the highly regarded treatise U.S. Securities Law for International Financial Transactions and Capital Markets, 3 Vols., West Group; What is Sarbanes-Oxley, McGraw Hill; U.S. Securities Regulation: All You Need to Know About Going Public, Listing, Reporting and Private Placements, Institutional Investor-Euromoney Books; Resales of Restricted Securities Under SEC Rules 144 and 144A, BNA Corporate Practice Series as well as numerous articles for legal and securities industry journals.

Mr. Lander also had a significant role in changing the securities laws. Mr. Lander represented InfrarRed Associates, which obtained a no-action letter that led to the creation of Regulation S (for cross-border offerings). He was a member of the ABA task forces that worked on the development of Regulation S, Rule 144A (enabling underwritten private placements) and drafted Rule 15a-6 (regulating non-U.S. broker dealers). He also obtained an amendment to Rule 13d-1 (enabling non-U.S. financial institutions to file Schedule 13G) and an SEC interpretation clarifying the resale rules of Regulation S.
