With another major piece of legislation now enacted - perhaps the greatest amount of change to the Securities Act of 1933 since it was enacted, particularly for IPOs - you need to get up-to-speed with the numerous provisions of the JOBS Act. These experts - including the two lawyers that served on the IPO Task Force whose recommendations were the precursor for the Act - will help cover the broad terrain that the JOBS Act entails:

Join our experts:

  • Lona Nallengara, Deputy Director (Legal), SEC's Division of Corporation Finance
  • Steve Bochner, Partner, Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati LLP
  • Michael Kaplan, Partner, Davis Polk & Wardwell LLP
  • Dave Lynn, Editor, TheCorporateCounsel.net and Partner, Morrison & Foerster LLP
  • Joel Trotter, Partner, Latham & Watkins LLP

Among other topics, this program will cover:

  • How does the JOBS Act make it easier to go public, including the flexibility of an on-ramp period of up to five years
  • How does the JOBS Act enable companies to gauge investor interest before filing a registration statement
  • How does the JOBS Act permit confidential initiation of the SEC registration process
  • How does the JOBS Act streamline the requirements for financial statements
  • How does the JOBS Act permit analyst research before, during and immediately after the IPO
