Rich Lee – CEO and Co-Founder of New Era ADR

As a startup when you are incredibly capital constrained, even if you go
raise a round of capital, all that money you are pouring into a startup, it
should be used to go to market. The last thing you want to be spending
time and money on is litigation.

Garrett Sutton and Ted Sutton – Attorneys at Corporate Direct  and Experts on the Corporate Transparency Act

The Corporate Transparency Act requires that every corporation, LLC,
limited partnership in the country provide sensitive information to the
federal government. They want to know all of the 25% or greater owners
and who has substantial control of the entity. This is all done in the name
of fighting money laundering and terrorism. As the Wall Street Journal
said in an editorial, “Are the bad guys really going to report?” 32,000,000
American businesses now have to comply.
