Reg D Resources and Private Placement Memoranda Drafting – PPM Attorney

  • Generally, the legal document required to raise capital from institutional investors and individuals of high net worth is a Regulation D (Reg D) private placement memorandum or private placement offering (PPO).  It can be a very tricky and complicated process to secure funding through a Regulation D private placement offering.  There are no margins for error and it must be done right.  An experienced Regulation D Private Placement Lawyer from our firm makes sure of that.

Requirements of a Regulation D Private Placement Memorandum

  • Regulation D PPM’s call for a high level of experience and skill.  If not drafted and executed properly, there is potential for civil as well as criminal prosecution.  For this reason, TWO securities attorneys are assigned to draft your private placement offering.  All our Regulation D PPM attorneys have been drafting private placement offerings for over a decade.  Their experience is highly specialized.  Most small law firms have less than half that experience with private placement requirements.  Many of our securities attorneys have over twenty years of experience with private placement rules. Most large law firms, in fact, have associate level attorneys drafting their clients private placement documents.  Historically, veteran lawyers often are reserved for only the large and “valued” clients.

PPM investment – Regulation D

  • Theoretical legal principles are not a sole consideration when our lawyers are drafting your private placement offering.  Since we are PPM lawyers as well as securities litigators, our private placement offering documents are drafted anticipating arguments that regulators and plaintiff’s attorneys could potentially bring against our clients at some point in the future.  Because of our close relationship to investment banking firms, we can provide you with market advice and complex deal structuring that other attorneys cannot.

Private Placement Offering Documents – Regulation D

  • Whether they are for a manufacturing offering, private real estate fund, software development, or Artificial Intelligence initiative, private placement regulations must be fully understood by Regulation D private placement Lawyers.  This is the only way to protect yourself from potential calamity if you violate the myriad of securities laws when offering a PPM investment.  Non-lawyer consulting firms and inexperienced PPM attorneys are ill equipped to understand all the private placement rules.  While they may be very competent, many experienced Regulation D private placement lawyers at large law firms devote a minor percentage of their time to understanding private placement requirements.  Upon examination of attorney bios at large security firms, you will typically see at least four areas of practiced law, in addition to securities (ie. Banking law, real estate, mergers, and acquisitions, etc.)
  • At Centarus, we have devoted 95% of our law practice to Regulation D private placement offerings.  Additionally, our understanding of all private placement regulations gives our clients access to the drafting of Regulation A offerings, public offerings and litigating other law firms securities matters for their clients.  Our full understanding of private placement rules gives us a proven track record of over a decade of drafting legal documents that protect clients from regulatory investigations and litigation.  Often, a private placement lawyer or private placement attorney may be referred to as a crowdfunding attorney or cryptocurrency attorney. Our attorneys are considered experts in these specialized areas and these distinctions simply describe the scope of practice.

Our Skill and Experience

We are a boutique law firm that possesses the same level of skill and experience as a mid-size or a large law firm. Each of our attorneys has more than a decade of legal experience, and most are graduates of top schools in the U.S. Our team is comprised of a former Morgan Stanley in-house attorney, a former Securities and Exchange Commission staff reviewer, a former litigator with the Illinois Attorney General’s Office, and other attorneys who were trained by and worked at large and prestigious law firms.

Two Veteran Lawyers on Every Project

Why? Because we believe that this level of redundancy is necessary to draft securities offering documents in order to properly protect clients from the risk of future potential civil and criminal prosecution.

We Can Protect You Better

Since we are also securities litigators, we represent investors in securities fraud actions. These are litigation actions where investors have invested in offerings and have become dissatisfied with the results of the offering.

Experience with Distribution

Most law firms are far removed from securities distribution due to a lack of hands-on capital markets experience. Our attorneys aren’t just former law firm attorneys; many of our attorneys have worked directly for issuers that have issued hundreds of millions of dollars per year in securities. In addition, we are affiliated with a Finra registered broker dealer and investment bank, and our law firm and banking firm are involved in hundreds of millions of dollars of client capital raises each year. This provides our lawyers with extensive real world securities distribution experience and allows us to furnish our clients with necessary direction that other less experienced attorneys cannot.

Competitively Priced

We offer flat fee pricing that is extremely competitive considering our skill and experience.
