1h 9m

Created on February 18, 2021





When a company of any size raises capital, they must strike a perfect balance by simultaneously protecting themselves while enticing the investor(s) to put in their capital. A securities attorney, like the company, must balance their duty to protect their client in case of litigation while taking care not to have the deal die by over-lawyering. This program is taught by attorneys experienced on both sides. Todd Kulkin handles the transactional side and Christopher Warren handles shareholder litigation. Together, they will give attorneys the tools and provide practical advice using their experience in the boardroom and courtroom respectively as to how to master this balancing act.
