BLT: November 2013

On October 23, 2013, the SEC issued its long-awaited rule proposal on crowdfunding, bringing it one step closer to fruition.

There are several Delaware corporate law issues to watch out for in IPOs.

The goal of our newest Business Law Today column is to present topics that occasionally confront lawyers, principally business lawyers, involving the ethics rules, professionalism, and civility.

Good things happen when lawyers help out. They change their community, become more collegial, and have fun. When Consumer Education and Training Services (CENTS) was born in 1995, we had one goal: to improve financial literacy in our community.

Late October and early November saw three great annual Committee meetings, which bear review.

The LLCs, Partnerships and Unincorporated Entities Committee held the 2013 LLC Institute, featuring a keynote speech by Hon. Myron T. Steele, Chief Justice of the Delaware Supreme Court, addressing the “Growing Importance of Alternative Entities as Compared to Corporate Structures.”

The Business Bankruptcy Committee held its 2013 Annual Meeting, featuring a smorgasbord of CLE programs and in-person working committee meetings.

Finally, the Banking Law Committee held its annual meeting, presenting numerous panels that provided a multifaceted view of current trends and issues in banking law, including a panel discussion among the general counsel of the FRB, FDIC, OCC, and CFPB.
