How do you identify a security? What are some of the requirements related to offering and selling securities? How do they differ between private and public companies? What happens if you fail to comply with securities laws? How has legislation like the JOBS Act, the FAST Act changed the way in which companies offer and sell their securities?

In this webinar our expert panel provides you with a high-level overview of the federal securities laws as well as tangible examples and practical advice in answer to these and many more questions.

This webinar is delivered in Plain English, understandable to you even if you do not have a background in the subject.
