Blue Sky

Regulation of the securities industry by the Securities and Exchange Commission and by self-regulatory organizations such as the national stock exchanges is well known. However, in addition to such regulation, each state provides its own securities laws and rules that sellers of securities in the states must follow. In recent years, federal legislation has been enacted in order to pre-empt and eliminate various provisions of state securities laws that duplicate provisions of federal securities laws. Nevertheless, securities offerings remain subject to a myriad of state laws.

Grushko & Mittman has represented companies and investors in a variety of private equity transactions. Our attorneys have prepared private placement memoranda for many different types of business and have handled compliance with federal securities laws and state blue sky laws.
