Securities Transactional Work

Raising money for any commercial purpose implicates securities laws. Subject to some narrow exceptions, when you take investment money from parties who will not themselves be working with you, you will be subject to intricate and potentially deadly securities laws, rules and regulations. Many business attorneys are unfamiliar with securities laws and draft such investment documents incorrectly. At The Vasilco Law Group, P.C., we draft private placements of debt and equity and perform the required State 'blue sky' and federal SEC filings for small businesses and individuals.

Unsure if You Are Dealing With A Security? Here's the Test.

The supreme court ruled in the Howey decision that a security was essentially an investment contract where one invested money in an enterprise in hopes of profiting from the managerial efforts of other persons. This means that if you are, for instance, the key employee, your purchase of stock in your own company may not be a security, since you are really investing in your own efforts, not somebody else's. Also, this means that gold, oil, wheat and other commodities are not securities. They may make you money, but they are not an enterprise and not dependent on the managerial efforts of some third party. If you have questions about whether something is a security or not, call us. We want to talk with you.
