The Fifth Wave for Greg McAndrews & Associates
John De Nigris Associates hired
From late 1978 through 1986, we were the largest PR firm in the country handling tax shelter sponsors…until the Tax Reform Act of 1986 took effect…then we were the biggest firm of nuthin!!! We still had straight-up real estate, oil & gas and research & development clients; but not on the scope of the previous eight years.
Our real estate securities clients started eying the tax-deferred 1031 real estate provisions of the Code in early 1997. We became the largest PR firm in the country in this sector as many of our friends from the tax shelter days moved into this very attractive field. When conduit lending dried up and the mortgage loan industry fell into disarray, these clients basically moved to the sidelines and began the process to diversify their firms for the future.
Micro-cap firms are making a comeback as Sarbanes-Oxley filing guidelines become more firm and FINRA continues to clean up the Pink Sheet and Bulletin Board markets. As of mid-2008, we were back in that sector as we continued to support our real estate securities clients.
Mr. McAndrews opened an Alexandria, VA office in May 2011 increasing the firm's exposure with regulatory authorities in Washington, D.C. and New York to better influence the direction of the small securities offering and trading industries. This is now the headquarters with representation in New York and Los Angeles continuing.
