Possible Insight

On the Advice of Counsel…

with 8 comments

Yesterday, the attorney for my new company advised me that I should be careful about what I disclose to the public about the company’s activities.  The company operates in a highly regulated field.  Evidently, any open discussion of what the company does, especially of any offerings it may or may not hypothetically be considering, could be construed as a solicitation.

From an economics point of view, I think that such restrictions, however well meaning their original intent, tend to merely protect incumbents from competition.  Nevertheless, I obviously don’t want the company to get into any trouble.  Therefore, I have edited or redacted any potentially problematic revelations from these posts

If you have any questions, post a comment here and I will contact you privately.
