Below is an excerpt:

The market for IPOs is coming back.

Laura Holm, a partner with Quarles & Brady law firm in Naples, recently helped a small Texas biotech firm raise $76 million in a public stock offering. “It’s easier for companies to go public now because of the Jobs Act,” she says.

Entrepreneurs who might never have considered selling stock to the public may now reconsider an initial public offering. “I’ve done over 10 IPOs in the last few years,” says Holm, a corporate attorney who also handles private transactions.
