Private Placements

Whenever a company is selling stock, notes or other securities, complex federal and state securities laws likely apply. Minor technical failures to comply with these laws can result in disruptive and costly penalties. These penalties can include purchasers of the securities having the right to demand that the company repurchase their securities with interest, as well as personal liability for officers of the company. Knowledge of and experience with these laws are generally found only at relatively large law firms. Ward practiced as a corporate and securities lawyer at two of the largest law firms in the country for 8 years, handling the securities law compliance for numerous capital-raising transactions in all 50 states. With Ward you get the best of both worlds – big law firm experience with multi-state capital-raising transactions delivered with the rates, efficiency and one-on-one attention expected from a more intimate firm.
