American Bar Association- Equity Crowdfunding: Potential Profit? Or Potential Headache? Jillian Sidoti, Esq, CCIM
September 30, 2019
Crowdfunding, raising money to support an undertaking or cause by reaching out to large, unknown numbers of people as donors through in-person events or social media, has become increasingly common. A new approach for start-up businesses is equity crowdfunding. This approach allows you to seek investments from potential shareholders. All in all, an array of legal and ethical issues can trip up any individual or organization testing this financing approach. Lawyers need to be positioned to counsel clients effectively on the parameters, ethical considerations, and legal conditions surrounding crowdfunding.
Jillian will be among the speakers as they provide:
•Guidance on consumer issues
•Guidance on regulations and federal security laws
•Legal and personal liabilities one may encounter
•Information on properly vetting intellectual property
