What is Blue Sky Law?

Blue sky law is an individual state law designed to protect investors from securities fraud. The laws vary by state, but they all ensure licensing of brokerage firms, individual stockbrokers, and their offerings. Public mergers are also required to comply with the applicable blue sky laws. 

The name is believed to come from a mention in the United States Supreme Court decision, Hall v. Geiger-Jones Co., 242 U.S. 539 (1917). This case dealt with the constitutionality of state security regulations. 

Blue sky laws developed in the years leading up to the Great Depression. This was due to the influx of fraudulent money schemes promising high returns. These included foreign country investments and oil fields. Companies offered enticing investment opportunities with very little legitimate backing in an attempt to make fast money from unsuspecting or naiv

What is a Right of First Refusal?

A right of first refusal, also called an ROFR, a first right of refusal, or a last look provision, gives a person or company the opportunity to start a business transaction before anyone else can. It could provide the first chance to buy stocks or real estate at the same price and terms as another offer. If the holder of the right of first refusal declines, the owner of the asset can sell it to whomever they want.

There's even an ROFR in many child custody agreements. It requires that one parent offer the other parent the chance to watch the kids before using a family member or outside child care.

A Right of First Offer: What is it?

A right of first offer or ROFO requires owners to tell the holder first when they plan to sell an asset. Then the holder of the ROFO has the right to make the first offer on the busine
