On June 3, at the 2013 Burton Awards for Legal Achievement event held by the Burton Foundation, in association with the Library of Congress and the Association of Legal Administrators (ALA), Partner David Westenberg was honored as the winner of the 2013 ALA Award for “Outstanding Authoritative Book by a Partner in a Law Firm.” Westenberg received this recognition for the second edition of his acclaimed IPO guidebook, Initial Public Offerings: A Practical Guide to Going Public. This coveted honor is given annually to one book that represents “an important contribution to the legal profession” and “is comprehensive in scope, informative, incisive, and is an important reference and informational tool.”

Initial Public Offerings, which has been termed the “bible of the IPO market” by The New York Times (The Deal Professor, January 19, 2010), draws upon Westenberg’s and the firm’s decades of IPO market experience. Timely updates on the IPO market can be found on WilmerHale’s IPO blog.
