As the merchant cash advance (MCA) industry is trying to achieve wider acceptance as a source of small business financing, there are a number of risks that need to be considered and mitigated. Among these are the securities laws that pertain to this space, which can be confusing and difficult to interpret. Please join us for a discussion on MCAs with a team of Pepper attorneys who will cover the full spectrum of issues — from regulation through litigation.

Topics will include:

  • Review of recent MCA court decisions
  • Securities-related risks
  • California disclosure rules
  • MCA contracts (including the use of guarantees and confessions of judgment)
  • Stacking
  • Litigation update

This seminar is being offered as an in-person networking event in Pepper’s New York office and nationally as a webinar for attendees outside the New York metro area.

The program is pending approval for one (1) MCLE credit in California, Pennsylvania, New York and New Jersey (through reciprocity). Credit for other jurisdictions may be available upon request.
