Regulation A Attorney | Reg A Drafting and Resources | What is Regulation A

  • A Regulation A offering memorandum is a legal document that is generally required to raise capital from high net worth individuals and institutional investors. Securing funding through a Regulation A offering can be a very complicated and tricky process if it is not done right. A skilled SEC Regulation A exemption lawyer can help you.
  • After passage of the Jobs Act in 2012, the Regulation A offering exemption was renamed “Regulation A+,” and it truly became new and improved. The Regulation A+ offering has two Tiers, Tier 1, and Tier 2, and it is a type of “mini IPO.” The new Tier 1 and Tier 2 will permit the sale of securities of up to $20M and $50M respectively, but there are other pros and cons which our lawyers will be happy to discuss with you.
  • Regulation A vs Regulation D (Reg A vs Reg D) Offerings: Although both Regulation A and Regulation D are both exemptions from a full registration, Regulation A offerings require that issuers file an offering statement with the SEC. This offering statement is subject to review and comments from the SEC, but the review is less involved than that of a full S1 public offering registration. Regulation D exempt offerings, in contrast, do not require any substantial disclosure filing with the SEC. The only document that must be filed with a Regulation D offering is a Form D, which takes 5 minutes to complete.

Regulation A Offering Requirements

  • Because of the potential for civil and criminal prosecution if not executed properly, Regulation A exemption offerings require a high level of skill and experience—this is the reason that we assign TWO Regulation A lawyers to draft all of our client’s offering documents, whether Tier 1 or Tier 2. In addition, all of our Regulation A attorneys have over a decade of experience drafting private placement offerings, and most have about 20 years of concentrated practice in this area. This is nearly double the experience of most small law firms and many midsized firms. In fact, most large law firms assign associate level attorneys, with less than six years of experience, to draft most clients offering documents. Large law firm veteran lawyers typically only serve large and “valued” clients.

  • Our documents are not drafted solely based on theoretical legal principles. Instead, since we are Regulation A lawyers and securities litigators, we draft our offering documents so that they anticipate potential arguments that plaintiff’s attorneys and regulators could make against our clients in the future. Our backgrounds and our close ties to investment banking firms allow us to provide you with deal structuring and market advice that other lawyers can’t.

Regulation A Offering Documents | What is a Reg A offering

  • Regulation A / Reg A exemption offering documents, whether they are for a real estate offering, cryptocurrency offering, or crowdfunding offerings, must be carefully crafted by a Regulation A lawyer to protect you from running afoul of the securities laws. Inexperienced Regulation A attorneys and non-lawyer consulting firms are simply unequipped to draft these types of documents. In fact, many experienced large law firm SEC Regulation A / Reg A exemption lawyers, while very competent, only devote a small percentage of their practice to drafting private placements, usually 25% or less. In fact, if you closely examine large law firm securities lawyer’s bio’s, you will notice that most of them describe that they are experts in no less than four areas of law in addition to securities law (ie. mergers and acquisitions, real estate, banking law, etc).
  • At our firm, 95% of our law practice is devoted to drafting Private Placements, Regulation A exemption offerings, public offerings and to litigating securities matters for other law firm’s clients. In addition, as SEC Regulation A lawyers, we have a near decade long proven track record of drafting legal documents that protect clients from litigation and regulatory investigation. Finally, a Regulation A / Reg A lawyer may also be referred to as a crowdfunding attorney or cryptocurrency attorney, but such distinctions are only necessary to describe the lawyers’ scope of practice, and our attorneys are considered experts in both of these specialized areas.

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 in securities. 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 when you consider our skill and experience.
