Feb 21, 2022

In today’s show, Pancham interviews Bethany LaFlam - managing partner of Premier Law Group PLLC and co-creator of Asherah's Box.

Her role in providing legal counseling and strategic matters to clients has helped protect syndicators and passive investors to stay out of legal troubles, a modern-day hero indeed! Following her entrepreneurial desires, she has now launched her own subscription box business and has been managing them since!

In this episode, she will showcase her expertise as she shares legal advice and the green and red flags to look out for when investing in a syndication deal! She'll also share her knowledge on the basics of public and private offerings, and what you should know about the Private Placement Memorandum.

“When I started doing PPM for these syndication deals, I’m like “What do you mean there's cash flow?” I am just enamored by this world now and having the law background has provided sort of different color for that.”

3 Key Points:

  1. Don’t invest with an operator who guarantees you positive returns as it’s not allowed. As a limited partner, you’re protected from those and the liability would go to the operator.
  2. It’s important to tell potential investors about the potential risks in a deal upfront instead of telling them after they’ve made their investment.
  3. You can’t solicit or advertise your deals publicly if you’re conducting an offering under Rule 506(b) thus, seeing those offerings in social media is a red flag to look out for.
