About This Blog

Counselor@Law started publishing in 2009 and worked its way up to posting daily within a year or two. It stood down a couple years ago, not publishing new material, but maintaining the archive that continued to see traffic.

Current thinking is that Counselor@Law may return to more frequently postings in 2016, more narrowly focused on accredited crowdfunding, Rule 506, and other new changes wrought to securities laws by the JOBS Act that impact startup and emerging company financing and angel investors.

We'll see!
