BLUE SKY ATTORNEYS – The state securities laws are a tangle of rules and regulations that differ from state to state, and impact public offerings of securities, private placements, investment advisor registrations and broker-dealer regulations. Experienced securities blue sky counsel can assist you with understanding those rules, and help to insure compliance.


Introduction

In addition to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission, each State has its own rules and regulators. Here is a listing of the various state administrators, with links to their home pages, email address and to the text of the State’s Blue Sky laws, where available.

For more information on the operation of the state securities laws, see Introduction to the Blue Sky Laws. For an overview of the securities laws generally, see Introduction to the Securities Laws.
