BUSINESS LAW AND CORPORATE COUNSEL SECTION ANNUAL MEETING
WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 27, 2016 - SAVE THE DATE!
REGISTRATION INFORMATION COMING SOON
1) Crowdfunding is Coming; Crowdfunding is Coming – And It’s Not Just For Securities Law Practitioners. Popular sites such as Kickstarter, Indiegogo and GoFundMe have in recent years allowed individuals and entrepreneurs to raise funds from a “crowd” of other people, but not to sell an interest in the enterprise – a “security.” On Oct. 30, 2015, the SEC adopted final rules permitting companies to offer and sell securities through crowdfunding. Learn how the business lawyer can use the SEC’s new crowdfunding regulations to assist clients in raising up to $1 million of capital by selling stock instead of T-shirts. What was once suitable to fund rock-and-roll band tours can now be used for small business capital funding.
2) Cybercrime – Before and After. Key Legal and Strategic Considerations and Practical Tips on How Organizations Can Navigate Issues of Civil Liability, Regulatory Enforcement and Criminal Prosecution. Full program coming soon.
