Financial Poise™ Webinars and West LegalEdcenter are pleased to announce the July 24th premiere of a new webinar, Private Offering Exemptions and Private Placements, which discusses the myriad private offering exemptions and how to properly conduct a private placement.

CHICAGO (PRWEB) July 20, 2018

The federal securities laws, made up of a interwoven collection of Congressional statutes, rules and regulations promulgated by the Securities and Exchange Commission and federal judicial precedent, play a ubiquitous role throughout a company's life-cycle, relevant from the first issuance of founder shares at organization, to the use of equity compensation to reward and incentivize directors, employees and consultants, to offerings of equity and debt in corporate finance transactions, to initial, secondary and alternative public offerings, in mergers and acquisitions, strategic transactions and beyond.

This Financial Poise SECURITIES LAW 2018 webinar series features leading securities law experts who will discuss both the fundamentals of the federal securities laws and the latest developments in this ever-evolving area of law.

The second episode of the series, Private Offering Exemptions and Private Placements, airs on July 24th at 2:00 PM CST (Register Here) and features Moderator Vanessa Schoenthaler of Sugar Felsenthal Grais & Helsinger. She is joined by Craig Mordock of Sheppard, Mullin, Richter & Hampton LLP, Alissa Parisi of K & L Gates, and Julia Vax of Arnold & Porter Kaye Scholer LLP.

The private capital markets have become an increasingly important source of funding for both private and public companies alike. Today total capital raised through private placements surpasses total capital raised in public offerings. What's more, in recent years legislation like the JOBS Act has made a number of significant changes to laws and regulations governing private capital markets. Consequently, an understanding the myriad private offering exemptions and how to properly conduct a private placement is crucial for not only for lawyers, but also for executives, managers, directors and anyone involved in corporate finance transactions.

In this webinar our expert panel provides you with a high-level overview of private offering exemptions, including the latest developments in this ever-changing area of the securities laws, as well as tangible examples and practical advice on how to conduct a successful private placement.

The SECURITIES LAW 2018 webinar series is produced by Financial Poise.™ The final episode in the series is "Advanced Topics: Public Company Reporting," airing on August 21st. Each episode airs at 2:00 PM CST. All episodes premiere live through West LegalEdCenter and then are made available on-demand.
