As part of the Dodd-Frank Act, many of the proposed rules have been written and are be available for public comment. Most recently, the Exemptions for Advisers to Venture Capital Funds, Private Fund Advisers With Less Than $150 Million in Assets Under Management, and Foreign Private Advisers was posted here. Imagine my pleasant surprise to see two PLI treatises cited in the proposed rules: Exempt and Hybrid Securities Offerings and Private Equity Funds: Formation and Operation.
In addition, the PLI Securities Law Practice Center set up some resources to help you keep up with the rulemaking.
