When Is Financing Necessary?

What Laws Apply to Corporate Financing?

Corporate financing operates within a framework governed by various laws. Corporate finance laws govern the financial activities of businesses, including regulating capital raising, investments, and financial risk management. It encompasses securities, mergers, acquisitions, corporate governance, and tax laws intended to safeguard shareholders and creditors, fostering transparency in financial markets.

Each law plays a crucial role in shaping financial transactions. These include:

  • New York Business Corporation Law (NYBCL): The state law outlines the rights and responsibilities of companies, their boards of directors, executives, and shareholders. It forms a foundational aspect of corporate governance in New York.
  • Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) regulations: Federal regulations set by the SEC play a pivotal role, particularly for publicly traded corporations. These regulations establish rules and requirements governing disclosure and transparency, essential for maintaining fair and efficient markets.
  • Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC): The CFTC regulates the U.S. derivatives market for companies involved in derivatives trading. It includes overseeing swaps and futures transactions, contributing to market integrity and investor protection.
  • Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002: Enacted in response to corporate scandals, this federal law imposes certain practices, such as stringent audits and whistleblower protections, to enhance the accuracy and reliability of corporate financial disclosures.
  • Stock Exchange Standards: Listing standards set by stock exchanges such as the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) establish corporate governance expectations for companies listed on such exchanges.
