Jan 06, 2016, 14:00 ET from American Law Institute Continuing Legal Education

PHILADELPHIA, Jan. 6, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- American Law Institute Continuing Legal Education is pleased to announce the return of Regulation D Offerings and Private Placements…Plus New Options for Exempt Offerings. This year's program will be held Thursday - Saturday, March 10 - 12, 2016 at Omni Scottsdale Resort and Spa at Montelucia in Scottsdale, AZ.

After waiting over three years since the signing of the JOBS Act into law, SEC rules regarding crowdfunding were finally approved on October 30, 2015. Major developments in the world of exempt offerings - including significant changes to Reg D, the adoption of Reg A+, and the establishment of federal crowdfunding regulations - are here.

Planning chair Bob Robbins of Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman LLP in Washington, DC notes that "the JOBS Act of 2012 upended private placements, permitting general solicitation and public advertising for the first time and calling for the promulgation of SEC rules to permit crowdfunding and to provide for a new, larger and more useful form of Reg A for offerings up to $50 million."

This advanced annual program delivers a definitive review, a sophisticated perspective, and a practical understanding of the developments in offerings today. 

Our distinguished faculty - including current and former SEC, state, and FINRA regulators, experienced practitioners, and industry participants - analyze the final SEC rules and how market practice is responding, review current pertinent federal and state laws and regulations, and examine timely topics. Highlighted faculty include Sebastian Gomez Abero, Chief of the SEC's Office of Small Business Policy and Martin Dunn from Morrison & Foerster in Washington, DC, who is one of the highest rated CLE presenters in the nation.

Some of this year's hot topics include Manner of Sale (506(b) v. 506(c); Defining and Verifying Accredited Investors; Bad Person Disqualifications; Section 12(g) Mechanics; Finders; and Regulatory Compliance.

A registrant from last year's conferences notes, "Great course – very informative and great way to stay current on developments. The faculty is very, very good and Marty Dunn is stellar. I love the course being in Phoenix at this time of year and this certainly contributes to my attendance as well."
