About the Blog

Jim Hamilton’s World of Securities Regulation ambitiously attempts to opine on every level of securities regulation (federal, state, international, theoretical) … covering people of all types (e.g., accountants, broker-dealers, foreign issuers, hedge funds, market manipulators) … doing all sorts of transactions and activities (acquisitions, financial reporting, private placements, pyramid schemes). In his day job as a securities law analyst, Jim authors serious commentary about this world, but rarely has the chance to comment on events as they happen or engage with a broad community to discuss nuance and deeper meaning. The blog is that forum. Its aim is to highlight issues of particular importance to securities lawyers and their clients, and to encourage a dialogue, with emphasis on SEC rulemaking, industry trends, and the many curiosities that inhabit this world.
