Scott Jordan will be participating in the roundtable covering the JOBS Act on Monday, Nov. 9th from 8:30 – 11:30 a.m. in Washington, DC (Morrison & Foerster office). The event, hosted by Milken Institute Center for Financial Markets, will be an off-the-record discussion of the impact the JOBS Act has had on capital formation and investor access and protection, and will feature government and industry representatives, academics and investor advocates. They anticipate discussing:

  • JOBS Act “successes” and JOBS Act “fixes”
  • How can IPO costs be reduced
  • The prospects for smaller IPOs
  • Research coverage for smaller companies
  • Capital formation issues for the already public small-cap and mid-cap companies
  • Should the definition of “Accredited Investor” change, and if so how
  • Do “Main Street” businesses now have necessary and appropriate access to the securities markets
  • How should state and federal regulators adapt to changing markets
