Re:LMP Automotive Holdings, Inc. (the “Company”) Offering Statement on Form 1-A (the “Offering Statement”)

 

Ladies and Gentlemen: 

 

We have acted as special counsel to the Company, a corporation incorporated under the laws of the State of Delaware, in connection with the filing of the Offering Statement under Regulation A promulgated under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), with the Securities and Exchange Commission relating to the proposed offering by the Company (the “Offering”) of up to up to 2,300,000 shares (the “Shares”) of its common stock, par value $0.00001 per share (the “Common Stock”), including up to 300,000 Shares issued in connection with the underwriter’s over-subscription option.

 

For purposes of rendering this opinion, we have examined originals or copies (certified or otherwise identified to our satisfaction) of:

 

1.the Certificate of Incorporation, as filed with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware on December 18, 2017;

 

2.the Bylaws of the Company in the form filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”); and

 

3.Resolutions of the Board of Directors of the Company adopted by unanimous consent on July 24, 2018.

 

We have also examined such other certificates of public officials, such certificates of executive officers of the Company and such other records, agreements, documents and instruments as we have deemed relevant and necessary as a basis for the opinion hereafter set forth.

Based on the foregoing and on such legal considerations as we deem relevant, we are of the opinion that the Shares have been duly authorized and, when issued and delivered against payment therefor as described in the Offering Statement, will be validly issued, fully paid and non-assessable. 

The foregoing opinion is limited to the Delaware General Corporation Law, as currently in effect, and we do not express any opinion herein concerning any other law.
