Capital Markets Partner Quoted on Equity Crowd-Funding and Startup Investments

The Wall Street Journal | April.05.2013

​This article, about equity crowd funding, "regular people" investing in startup companies and the impact of the Jumpstart Our Business Startups (“JOBS”) Act, quotes capital markets partner Karen Dempsey.

Dempsey stated the Securities and Exchange Commission deserves praise for how it has handled the regulation of funding for startups.

She believes that the JOBS Act, which was designed for several reasons, including easing the costs and burdens of going public for mature, private companies, has accomplished this goal.
