Resales of Restricted Securities

February 26, 2021
1:00 p.m. - 2:30 p.m. Eastern

This CLE webinar will examine the existing regulatory framework around "restricted securities," and the avenues available for their sale, including the Rule 144 safe harbor and other exemptions. The program will address the role of intermediaries in facilitating these transactions and interesting issues involving resales of shares in pre-IPO "unicorn" companies. The panel will also discuss the contractual restrictions that issuers often place on the transfer of restricted securities and opinion considerations.
