Georgia P. Quinn is a senior associate in the New York office of Seyfarth Shaw LLP. She is a member of the firm's Capital Markets practice group and a specialist in crowdfunding. Ms. Quinn has spearheaded the firm’s crowdfunding initiative and is a sought after thought-leader in the crowdfunding space. Ms. Quinn has recently spoken to the Securities and Exchange and Commission , Congressional staff-members, leaders of UK crowdfunding portals and has chaired a panel on crowdfunding for the ABA and presented to the Council of Development Finance Agencies, the Crowdfund Global Expo in San Diego, in an international webcast for the New York State Bar Association, at the New York State Securities Bar and at the Small Business Administration Roundtable on crowdfunding in Washington DC. Ms. Quinn is also a contributor to CrowdfundInsider.com, the preeminent media source for crowdfunding news. Ms. Quinn represents both portals and issuers on securities laws matters.

Early on, Ms. Quinn realized that the proposed JOBS Act crowdfunding rules could be onerous and cost prohibitive for small companies relative to the amount of money being raised and worked closely with SeyfarthLean® Consulting and Seyfarth’s award-winning technologists to develop and test a more efficient technology solution, which evolved into Disclosure Dragon software, designed specifically for the crowdfunding industry. Disclosure Dragon is the first advanced document automation solution that helps companies and online portals efficiently and effectively prepare the necessary legal and financial disclosure to conduct crowdfunding offerings. For small businesses and early stage companies, Disclosure Dragon automates, expedites and standardizes the development of a private placement memorandum (PPM) (or other required disclosure documents depending on the type of offering) and supporting exhibits required to satisfy the U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission’s regulations.
