About the practice area

We handle public and private offerings of equity and debt securities of all kinds. The firm has been issuer's counsel for public and private offerings, including private (Regulation D) offerings, federal crowdfunding offerings (Regulation A and Regulation CF), and California direct public offerings (DPOs). We have negotiated venture investments on behalf of both startup companies and venture funds.

Our firm’s combination of social impact-oriented clients and sophisticated securities experience has allowed us to become leaders in the field of community investment funds. We think strategically and creatively about incorporating these features into our client’s business and legal models. We also work with our clients to find investors aligned with their goals.

In 2021, our legal work designing and launching the Little Tokyo Community Impact Fund, SPC (Los Angeles, CA) was recognized by NYU Law School’s Grunin Center for Law and Entrepreneurship for its contribution to the impact investing space.
