Accelerating Your Success: Coordinating Funding for Early- and Growth-Stage Businesses.

September 15, 2015 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm





Many entrepreneurs view capital-raising as a necessary element of their business plan; however, proper legal planning is necessary to ensure that your business is most attractive to potential investors.  Peter’s presentation will cover common strategies used to raise capital, as well as provide an overview of key deal points to be aware of.  Peter will also highlight legal and regulatory considerations that every business taking on capital should be aware of, including recent changes promulgated under the JOBS Act.






Peter Nealis is a partner with Taft Stettinius & Hollister LLP, a full service law firm. Peter has substantial experience representing both public and private companies and investors in a variety of securities, regulatory, and corporate governance matters.

He has also represented businesses and their owners in connection with all aspects of the mergers and acquisitions process, and he regularly counsels clients on a wide variety of general corporate and business matters, including intellectual property protection and licensing.
