Private placement

If you’ve asked yourself the question, “Can I look for investors in my company by posting an advertisement on Craigslist?” we need to talk.

You are most surely violating state and federal securities law by conducting any kind of advertising or solicitation of investors on Craigslist or other public media, unless you have worked with a lawyer to comply with securities registrations requirements.

There are exemptions from securities regulation, but they are complicated and require careful legal advice.  Our office has helped startups negotiate this process and we could help yours.
