Securities and crowdfunding attorney Jim Verdonik received the WRAL TechWire Editor's Choice award during the 5th Annual TechWire Awards held last night in Raleigh. Verdonik was honored as a member of the NC PACES Act team which also included investor and entrepreneur Mark Easley and attorney Benji Jones. The team was instrumental in crafting and lobbying crowdfunding legislation. Their strategy included an informational website for the NC JOBS Act and NC PACES Act, or Providing Access to Capital for Entrepreneurs and Small Business, and a sustained lobbying campaign that continued until the law was passed late last year.
