E330 – Legal Potholes Capital Raisers Should Know About

There is a massive tsunami of interest headed towards the world of syndications and passive investments.

As you might know, I’m a huge proponent of this shift and believe it’s long overdue.

However, as new participants enter the space, it’s essential that they realize there are significant legal implications of pooling investors together, especially when millions of dollars are at stake.

Today, we are joined by Kim Lisa Taylor, the founder of Syndication Attorneys, and the author of How to Legally Raise Private Money. She’s here to give you a framework of what to do, what NOT to do, and how to avoid massive legal headaches when you’re raising money for syndications.

In this episode, we are going to discuss…

  • Why there is a quantum leap of legal complexity if your investors do not have significant control over the management of the assets in which they are investing
  • What an “Investment Company” is and why it’s important to avoid that classification
  • Some of the horror stories she’s had to work through for her clients, and how you can avoid making the same mistakes they made

Especially if you’re participating on the active side of any real estate transaction, it’s important that you understand and quantify the risk of litigation when pooling investors together.

This short interview will give you a lot to think about before raising your next million!
