Stinson Leonard Street - Dodd-Frank and the Jobs Act

Practice/Organization Description

Dodd-Frank and the Jobs Act

There’s a whole lot to know about the Dodd-Frank Act, and we’re combing through thousands of pages of legislation, SEC filings, rules, statements by public officials and congressional testimony to determine what’s most important to you.

In addition to our longtime reporting on Dodd-Frank, we initiated coverage of the JOBS Act because of its significance to our readers and client base. The JOBS Act is expected to significantly simplify capital-raising for private companies in a number of respects.

Our ever-growing number of posts (now more than 600) helps you make sense of this wide-ranging, high-impact legislation. To make it easier to find what’s important to you, we’ve organized the posts into 13 different topical categories.

All our bloggers are attorneys at Leonard, Street and Deinard. They work in a variety of practice areas, ranging from banking and securities to litigation and executive compensation.
