Federal securities laws play a ubiquitous role throughout a company’s life-cycle. This webinar provides a high-level overview of these laws and their impact on business.

The federal securities laws are an interwoven collection of statutes, rules, regulations and judicial precedent. They play a ubiquitous role throughout a company’s life-cycle.

Federal securities laws are relevant from the first issuance of founder shares. They are involved in the use of equity compensation as a reward and incentive for directors, employees and consultants. Securities laws are present in private offerings of equity and debt in corporate finance transactions.

Federal securities laws also affect

  • initial public offerings (IPOs),
  • alternative public offerings and
  • mergers and acquisitions (M&A).

This Financial Poise webinar series provides an overview of these laws and their impact on business.

The first episode of the "Securities Law Made Simple 2017" series is available now on demand! "Securities Law: An Overview" (Register Here) features Moderator Vanessa Schoenthaler of Sugar Felsenthal Grais & Hammer. Vanessa is joined by Julia Vax of Arnold & Porter Kaye Scholer LLP, Alissa Parisi of K&L Gates, and Craig Mordock of Sheppard Mullin.

Stocks and bond are easily recognizable as securities. It is less well known that promissory notes may also be securities. Certain joint venture interests and other types of investment contracts can be viewed as securities, as well.

How does one identify a security? What are some requirements related to offering and selling securities? How do they differ between private and public companies? What happens if one fails to comply with securities laws? How has legislation like the JOBS Act and the FAST Act changed the way companies offer and sell securities?

In this webinar, our expert panel provides a high-level overview of the federal securities laws. Tangible examples and practical advice answer these questions and many more.

Each episode is delivered in Plain English understandable to business owners and executives without a background in these areas. Yet, it is proven to be valuable to seasoned professionals. Each episode in the series brings you into engaging (and sometimes humorous) conversations.

Every Financial Poise webinar is designed to entertain as it teaches. Moreover, every Financial Poise episode in a series is designed to be viewed independently of the other episodes. Participants will enhance their knowledge of this area whether they attend one, some or every episode.
