Partner & Owner, Ellenoff Grossman & Schole LLP
Douglas S. Ellenoff
Mr. Ellenoff and the rest of the corporate department distinguish themselves from many other transactional lawyers on the basis of their ability to be part of the establishment of new securities programs, like PIPEs, SPACs, Registered Directs, Reverse Mergers and CrowdFunding, where the Firm’s professionals have played leadership roles within each of those industries, assisting in the creation, formation and strategies relating to those financings, as well as working closely with the regulatory agencies; including the SEC and FINRA; and the listing exchanges – AMEX and NASDAQ. Ellenoff Grossman & Schole has been heavily involved in CrowdFunding since its inception.
The Firm has sponsored conferences, webinars and has been invited to speak at different events on the topic. Mr. Ellenoff has met with the SEC several times to discuss many aspects of the new law, how the industry currently operates and how both the SEC and FINRA will register and regulate the portals.
