If you are new to the idea of raising money to invest in apartment buildings, the particulars of complying with SEC regulations may have you spooked. No one wants to inadvertently break the law and face restitution, sanctions, or worse—fines and jail time! The good news is, with an assist from an SEC attorney, it is not as difficult to comply with securities laws as you might think.
Mauricio Rauld is the founder and CEO of Premier Law Group, a boutique securities firm specializing in asset protection and SEC compliance. Mauricio has 18-plus years of experience helping multifamily investors increase and safeguard their wealth through syndications. He is a regular contributor to The Real Estate Guys Radio show and a faculty member of the Summit at Sea, a week-long conference for elite real estate entrepreneurs. In addition, Mauricio serves as legal advisor to The Real Estate Guys and asset protection advisor for The Elevation Group.
Today, Mauricio sits down with me to explain his role as a syndication lawyer. He discusses the two legal routes to SEC compliance, the idea of a ‘preexisting substantive relationship,’ and the consequences of breaking the law. Mauricio shares the difference between 506(b) and 506(c), describing the right way to use social media to connect with investors under each exemption. Listen in as Mauricio walks us through the process of working with an SEC attorney, including the general timeline and approximate cost for ensuring compliance with securities law.
