“The Wall Street Journal noted earlier this year that private capital markets ‘have leapfrogged public markets to become the most popular way for companies to raise money in the U.S.’ As private offerings have become increasingly important compared with public offerings, and as the number of very large private companies has surged while the number of listed public companies has steadily declined, the SEC is paying close attention to its policies regarding all types of exempt offerings. Especially with the surging popularity of new forms of capital-raising, such as initial coin offerings, it has never been more important for a lawyer to be aware of all of a client’s options for raising capital,” said Robert B. Robbins, Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman LLP, Washington, D.C.
