WEST PALM BEACH, Florida, November 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The Securities and Exchange Commission is holding its annual Government-Business Forum on Small Business Capital Formation at its Washington, D.C. headquarters today and the attendees are expected to be exceptionally enthusiastic. Attorney Laura Anthony, founding partner of the law firm Legal & Compliance, LLC is amongst the group and believes this year's forum will be particularly productive. "Discussions about capital formation options should be especially insightful considering that the presidential election is over and the newly elected regime is vocally pro-business." Ms. Anthony said. "No one is quite sure what changes are on the horizon but it's safe to say that the next twelve months will prove to be historic in terms of the public markets." According to the published agenda, the morning session of the forum will feature a panel discussion exploring how capital formation options are working for small businesses after the implementation of the JOBS Act. Following the morning panel discussion, participants will work in groups to formulate specific policy recommendations. "I will be working with the Secondary Marketplace for Securities of Small Businesses break out group," said Ms. Anthony. "Other group sessions will be focused on smaller reporting companies and exempt securities offerings."
