Program Materials

This CLE program will discuss a select set of considerations practitioners involved in syndicated real estate investment transactions should consider, including related securities laws compliance matters. The program will also cover how the JOBS Act and crowdfunding have changed the syndicated real estate market and what opportunities and pitfalls are inherent in the JOBS Act.

Description

Real estate syndication/financing is one of the largest drivers of the U.S. economy. While many real estate investment syndications are structured using LLCs, there are a variety of alternative structures that can be employed to address various divisions of financial benefits among the syndicate sponsor and the investors. 

Raising capital through a securities offering and pooling private investors was significantly transformed by the JOBS Act. New 506(c)/Regulation D rules allow syndicators to solicit investments from private accredited investors with proposed Regulation A+ equity crowdfunding rules poised to provide wider avenues to raise capital.

Listen as our authoritative panel of practitioners reviews various structures for syndicated real estate investments, securities law compliance issues, and financing considerations related to syndicated real estate investments. The panel will also discuss how the JOBS Act and crowdfunding has changed syndicated investment and the opportunities and pitfalls posed by the JOBS Act.
