Business Funding and Securities

Many start-up and existing

businesses find

that additional growth cannot be achieved without funding from third party sources, and bank financing is often difficult or impossible to obtain. Any time a business issues either an equity or debt instruments to an investor, legal counsel should be obtained to determine what steps must by taken to comply with all Federal and State securities laws. Many business people do not realize that these laws apply regardless of whether the investor is a close friend/relative, “angel” investor or a venture capital firm. We

advise our clients how to comply with these securities law requirements, and when necessary, we prepare the necessary disclosure documentation such as private placement memorandums or subscription agreements.
