Additionally, we represent our clients across all manner of capital-raising transactions, including:
Trusted Counsel and Partner to Investors
In addition to representing start-up and growth companies, our attorneys are highly experienced in representing angel investors, family offices and other high net-worth individuals, accelerators and incubators, venture capital funds, and corporate venture and strategic funds. We assist these clients in negotiating and executing their investments, provide strategic advice on structuring and investment optimization, and maintain an up-to-date understanding of current deal terms and market trends to ensure that our clients are positioned to achieve the best possible investment results.
Practical, Value-Additive Advice
Our attorneys are highly experienced and provide sophisticated legal advice while maintaining an acute focus on providing practical, creative and outcome-focused solutions. Many of our attorneys have also acted as internal counsel, served on boards, or have years of experience advising management and, as such, provide ongoing strategic counsel aligned to the specific needs of our client’s day-to-day operations and strategic goals. Our firm’s budget-conscious business philosophy allows us to provide this level of service at a cost basis in step with the needs of our start-up and emerging growth clients.
In addition to the advice provided by our attorneys in the venture capital and emerging business practice group, we also work with attorneys across the firm’s other areas of expertise to assist in our clients’ wider legal needs.
