Private Placements Lawyers

Under Regulation D, private placements are not subject to many of the restrictions imposed by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) because they are not part of a public offering. The use of private placements is often an attractive option for startup companies that do not have the time nor want the scrutiny and expense of making a public offering.

There are a number of securities that can be offered in a private placement, including promissory notes, warrants, common or preferred shares of stock and others. Private placements can be very risky investments and should only be offered to sophisticated investors who understand what they are getting into and can tolerate the risk involved.

Working to Protect You Against Unsuitable Broker Recommendations

Brokers who recommend private placement opportunities to investors have the responsibility to ensure that such an investment is suitable based on each investor’s goals, risk tolerance and financial situation. Failure to do so is a violation of FINRA rules and could make the broker and his or her firm liable for losses suffered by investors due to unsuitable investment recommendations.
