We have updated our publication, The JOBS Act and Other Securities Law Essentials for Growing Companies, to incorporate the proposed crowdfunding rules as well as the new insights revealed in the SEC’s FAQs released yesterday that we blogged about earlier today.
The materials are a resource for growing companies to assist them in navigating the securities laws, which have been changing in the last few years at a breakneck pace. There are lots of articles floating around on the internet about the JOBS Act, crowdfunding, and general solicitation, and it can be difficult for small businesses to know what is hyperbole and what is accurate and legitimate. Our materials are a comprehensive guide to private placements and the impact of the JOBS Act on private placements, as well as offerings with and without the use of general solicitation, liability arising from private placements, issues arising from the use of finders, and common mistakes made by issuers and lawyers.
We will continue to update these materials to account for new developments. Check back at dodd-frank.com frequently to stay abreast of the latest news affecting private capital raising.
