Crowdfunding, Security Token and Corporate Finance Expert
Los Angeles, California
Securities and corporation finance attorney Charles Kaufman guides growing companies and entrepreneurs raising capital through STOs, crowdfunding and other traditional and alternative methods. A shareholder of Lexcuity PC, he draws on over 20 years’ experience both at global law firms and as general counsel of a public company to advise his clients in selecting from the array of options now available for directly reaching investors over the internet, and in executing an effective and compliant raise. Within the crowdfunding and STO space, Charles represents companies seeking capital through Title II (Rule 506(c)), Title III (Reg CF), and Title IV (Reg A+) of the JOBS Act. For companies already public or seeking to use JOBS Act crowdfunding as an entry to the public capital markets, he advises on registered and hybrid offerings, securities law reporting and compliance, corporate governance and global compliance. Charles earned both his J.D. and B.A. degrees at the University of California at Los Angeles. He is a member of the State Bar of California and serves on the editorial board of its International Law Journal.
