In particular, the Section deals with all aspects of capital raising under federal and state blue sky law; the Virginia Stock Corporation Act; the Revised Uniform Partnership Act; the Limited Partnership Act; laws governing Limited Liability Companies, Limited Liability Partnerships and other new forms of business entities.
