Class Content


This class is designed to provide a deeper understanding of the overall securities transaction process and legal framework focusing on offerings under Regulation D, with a secondary focus on private placements generally. The class starts by providing an overview of the key legal considerations, statutory provisions, and fundamental documentation that are involved in a Regulation D offering, and then leads participants through advising a client looking to raise equity capital through a Regulation D offering with an emphasis on learning how to identify relevant considerations, legal issues and documentation. Particular focus will be given to the junior associate and in-house counsel role in the process.

Level: Basic

This class is suitable for attorneys who have a general interest in Capital Markets but have not had extensive practical experience.

**A general understanding of Capital Markets transactions and/or prior completion of AltaClaro’s Overview of Capital Markets is recommended.


Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to: 
  • Understand the essential legal and regulatory framework applicable to Regulation D offerings
  • Be familiar with Regulation D exemptions and essential deal documents
  • Be able to contribute meaningfully in the deal process
  • Draft and negotiate basic terms of a stock purchase agreement

Simulation Exercise

Participants will be provided with an example of a purchase agreement for a Regulation D offering and will be asked to tailor it to the specific hypothetical issuer. Participants will assume the role of a junior associate in preparing the purchase agreement, taking into account the various considerations discussed in presentation materials.

CLE Credit

2 CLE Credits is available for each course.
