We advise clients on the formation and initial capitalization of their business. With experience as venture capital investors and entrepreneurs, our lawyers guide clients through how to set up their business ventures and all stages and types of private financings, from early seed and angel investments through expansion loans and other forms of growth capital. We also help high growth companies identify and access appropriate sources of financing. We are involved in all stages of the investment process, from reviewing and assisting in the development of business plans, assisting with due diligence and setting valuation and investment terms, to negotiating and closing the deal.

In challenging times, we advise our clients on bridge financings, debt restructuring and other loans, staying the course with our clients as they work through down rounds, team transition and investor relations issues on the path to recovery.  We specialize in advising clients on issues with venture investors, including management buyouts of venture-backed businesses. We understand the valleys and peaks of the entrepreneur and the venture capital cycle.
