Thought Leadership

KHLK, LLP is a law firm for today.  In 2012, the JOBS Act went into law.  This act was designed to encourage entrepreneurship and small business growth by paving the way for everyday investors to invest in early-stage companies.  With the JOBS Act, KHLK was also born. We recognized the need for attorneys with a more traditional securities and corporate law background to provide advice in this developing field.  We use our deep corporate and securities law experience to provide traditional as well as cutting edge advice and services to clients of CrowdCheck, Inc. as well as to other companies raising funds online and to broker dealers, industry professionals and investors who wish to facilitate capital formation.
