Attorney Scott Brunner Co-Authors Chapter on Equity Crowdfunding for the State Bar of Wisconsin

March 16, 2016

Meissner Tierney’s Scott Brunner has co-authored a new chapter on equity crowdfunding in the book titled Securities, Mergers, & Acquisitions in Wisconsin a publication of PINNACLE and the State Bar of Wisconsin.
Scott’s crowdfunding chapter is timely given the SEC’s recent finalization of its equity crowdfunding rules, on October 30, 2015, which become effective this May. The SEC’s newly finalized rules open the door for interstate, national-based equity crowdfunding over the internet. This new manner of raising capital was already available to Wisconsin businesses and residents, but the SEC’s new rules make it permissible on the federal scale as well. Start-ups and operating businesses may find that raising capital through internet crowdfunding could better attract non-accredited investors in addition to accredited investors.

The Third Edition titled Securities, Mergers and Acquisitions in Wisconsin is now available for purchase on the State Bar of Wisconsin website. Books can be purchased here.
