Michael Hawthorne to lead webinar on ‘The JOBS Act and its Regulatory Implications’

January 27, 2015

Corporate and securities partner Michael Hawthorne will lead a webinar for the Bank Insurance & Securities Association (BISA).

The webinar, “The JOBS Act and its Regulatory Implications,” will be held Wednesday, Jan. 28, 2015.

It has been almost two years since the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act (JOBS Act) became effective in an effort to revitalize the U.S. economy and encourage investments in small businesses by easing some of the securities regulations. How has it impacted your compliance efforts? Do you think the Act is meeting its intended goals? Michael’s session will provide an opportunity for professionals to further review and understand the impact of various pieces of the legislation, including Rules 506(c) and 144A, Form D changes, the “Bad Actor Rules,” crowdfunding and insurance.

Michael has a diverse transactional practice that focuses on the corporate and securities needs of private and public businesses — from startups to multi-billion-dollar enterprises.  Michael has successfully helped many of his clients secure billions of dollars through capital raising, including public and private offerings, and private equity funding sources. He is the current president of the International Association of Family-Held Enterprises (afhe).
