You should talk to an UpCounsel attorney regarding your specific situation to determine whether you may be one of the rare companies that may be exempt from certain rules.

Besides federal securities laws, are there state securities laws I must abide by as well?

So on top of federal laws, there are most likely certain state laws you must also abide by. A competent attorney will be necessary to help you navigate these laws and ensure your company’s compliance with all relevant statutes and laws.
