Purchaser Representation, Trustee and Board of Director Services

The Securities and Exchange Commission has rules for who can invest in privately placed securities. There are minimum income and net worth tests that establish “accredited investor” status, but there are also provisions for non-accredited investors to participate. Non-accredited investors, along with a Purchaser Representative, are presumed to have the financial sophistication to participate, regardless of their net worth or income.

When a company is raising capital or it is being acquired for stock, it is common for some investors, employees, advisors and others to be non-accredited and, accordingly, for a Purchaser Representative to be engaged to advise them.

Similarly, certain transactions (e.g., transactions involving ESOP companies) may require the short-term engagement of an independent trustee.

We provide Purchaser Representative and Trustee Services that allow transactions to proceed quickly and efficiently, while protecting the interests of those we represent. 

                What others are saying:


“Neil served as the purchaser representative in a sophisticated, mid-market, blended cash and stock-for-stock acquisition. He proved an amazingly fast study – understanding a complex, time-constrained transaction and explaining it to investors (and even lawyers) in plain, understandable English… I highly recommend him.”  (Lance Kawesch, Kawesch Law Group, LLC)
