PHILADELPHIA, Dec. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- American Law Institute Continuing Legal Education (CLE) is pleased to announce the return of Regulation D Offerings and Private Placements 2017 on March 16-18, to be held in Scottsdale, Arizona. This prominent program will examine changes to Regulation D and exempt offerings, and how these changes are affecting the financial industry. The faculty for this program will include current and former SEC, FINRA, and state regulators, experienced practitioners, and industry experts.
The program's faculty will analyze the SEC rules and how market practice has responded, review current federal and state laws and regulations, and examine timely topics such as:
- Rule 506 (c) as a tool to use "general solicitation" to raise money from qualified investors
- Federal crowdfunding exemptions for startups and small businesses
- Reg A+ as an alternative to private placements
- Expanded Rule 504 and the new feasibility of intrastate and regional offerings
- Best practices for the integration of exempt and other offerings
- Redefining the accredited investor
- Marketing of private equity funds through pre-offerings, seminars, parallel marketing and private placement publicity
- Requirements for delayed and continuous offerings
- Ethical issues and pitfalls involving EB-5 offerings
- Internet-based capital formations; portals and broker-dealers
Robert B. Robbins, the program's planning co-chair and head of Corporate and Securities services at Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman LLP in Washington, DC said "Given regulatory developments and early experience with new exempt offering alternatives, we want this year especially to compare and contrast the exempt offering alternatives, consider how they interact (integrate) with each other, and address the marketing and marketplace realities for Regulation D, Regulation A+, crowdfunding, and other exempt offerings and private placement securities." Alan J. Berkeley, K&L Gates LLP, Washington, D.C. will be co-chairing the program with Mr. Robbins.
This program is designed for securities and in-house lawyers who provide advice on capital raising and private placements. It will also benefit compliance officers and other principals of financial firms, as well as entrepreneurs, angel financiers/investors, venture capitalists, business finders, and bankers engaging in private placements and raising capital.
