Legal Matters


The Company is involved in litigation and arbitrations from time to time in the ordinary course of business. The Company does not believe that the outcome of any such pending or threatened litigation will have a material adverse effect on its financial condition or results of operations. However, as is inherent in legal proceedings, there is a risk that an unpredictable decision adverse to the company could be reached. The Company records legal costs associated with loss contingencies as incurred. Settlements are accrued when, and if, they become probable and estimable.




The Company leases office space in New York City under an operating lease which expires on August 31, 2020. Rent expense for this property $52,641 and $174,115 for the three months and nine months ended September 30, 2017, respectively and $54,757 and $157,401 for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016, respectively, net of expense allocation to affiliates.
