CHICAGO, IL (PRWEB) March 09, 2016
The federal securities laws, made up of a complex assortment of statutes, rules, regulations and judicial precedent, play a ubiquitous role throughout a company’s life-cycle, relevant from the first issuance of founder’s shares at organization, to the use of equity compensation to reward and incentivize directors, employees and consultants, to private offerings of equity and debt in corporate finance transactions, to initial public offerings, alternative public offerings, in mergers and acquisitions and beyond.

How do you identify a security? What are some of the requirements related to offering and selling securities? How do they differ between private and public companies?
