    CRS is a full service firm with a wide range of experience and expertise in the areas of state blue sky securities laws, federal registrations, federal securities rules and regulations, applications for public trading with the NASD, corporate finance, private investment partnerships, and corporate transactional work. In addition, CRS - structured as a corporate consulting firm and not a law firm -is able to pass along increased savings, efficiencies, and contacts to its clients.

    Achieving Results with CRS  

    Our goal is to achieve our clients immediate capital formation and securities goals and objectives, while also protecting -and advancing -their long term interests. We work side-by-side with our clients to identify and refine their objectives, to anticipate the potential risks, and to formulate a strategy that achieves the desired results. With a great deal of experience and knowledge in the corporate securities arena, we draw on a proven track record and a deep intelligence pool to formulate solutions for our clients ?requirements and needs.

Along with the foundation of the applicable securities rules and regulations, we form a plan that meets the client ?s securities and capital formation goals.

    Emphasis on Value

    At CRS, we believe that good service also requires a determined and specific emphasis on containing costs. With our flexible contract price structure as well as our industry contacts we can save our clients both time and money. Along with this savings you still receive a full service staff which prepares and reviews your documentation through-out the process.
