Companies Seeking Investment
A large component of our practice involves preparing companies for, and guiding them through, successful capital raising transactions. We handle even the most complex offerings efficiently and with the required experience and sophistication. We represent emerging growth companies in all stages of corporate financing, including:
- Venture capital and other private placement financings
- Convertible Debt and other bridge financing
- Mezzanine transactions
- Angel and “friends and family” seed rounds
- Senior and subordinated debt facilities
Our lawyers have actually been on “all sides of the table” in these transactions as attorneys for investors and issuers, founders of venture-backed companies and inside and outside roles within venture funds. We address both legal and “business” issues that are important to our clients that are raising capital. Our extensive work for venture capital firms, angel investment groups and private equity firms gives us insight into the perspectives and expectations of these investors, as well as real-time market terms and trends in capital markets.
Establishing and Advising Funds.
We represent investment funds for matters specific to the fund business–from organization, structuring, portfolio investment transactions and regulatory matters. We work with individual investors, angel groups and fund managers on transactions large and small and apply our Lean Law approach to minimize transaction costs.
