I am a corporate and securities attorney with cryptocurrency, crowdfunding and financial regulation experience. My previous experience focused on advising private equity and hedge fund managers on fund formation and regulatory compliance. I have advised foreign and domestic clients on cryptocurrency and ICO matters, crowdfunding, corporate transactions and regulatory compliance. I have drafted and reviewed offering documents such as PPM, Whitepapers, and other corporate documents.

I have held FINRA licenses Series 7 (Securities Registered Representative) and Series 66 (Registered Investment Advisor) (CRD #6583124: INACTIVE). I have a broad range of experiences as a corporate and securities attorney with regulatory compliance experience.

I have also served as outside in-house counsel for small businesses and e-commerce companies in various industries. In that capacity, I have drafted and reviewed sales and licensing agreements, intellectual property agreements, SaaS agreements, vendor agreements, marketing materials, cyber security policies, NDAs, employment agreements, and complex non-routine contracts addressing day-to-day legal issues of the respective company.

I am an avid follower of regulatory developments affecting the cryptocurrency space, and I attend continuing legal education seminars regularly to confer with my colleagues on recent regulatory enforcement actions, final rules, guidances and exemptive orders from the SEC, FINRA, CFTC, and IRS.

Great Lawyer for Hedge Fund
Jephte is an adept and competent securities attorney. After contacting several attorneys in regards to fund formation, we decided to go with him. He gave insightful and actionable advice before we retained him and that ultimately influenced our decision. Jephte is one of the best investments that we have made in forming and protecting our business. We look forward to continuing our working relationship with Jephte.
