Business & Corporate
Our firm is structured to support clients at every stage of their business ventures, from initial concept through M&A, along with the long-term life and eventual “exit” of the business. Our lawyers, many of whom began their careers at large firms, have significant experience in guiding clients through various startup incubator programs, including Founder Institute, TechStars and many others.
We enable our clients to function freely and flexibly without interruption due to corporate governance, shareholder issues, contract and license negotiation, and regulatory matters. Our corporate team has counseled boards of public, private, and not-for-profit companies and special committees organized for dedicated tasks.
Our team also helps businesses secure financing of a variety of forms and structures. We advise about the types of investment vehicles most appropriate for each company and make sure the chosen investment strategies are efficient, effective, and compliant. We work with clients seeking corporate financing, as well as clients exploring investment opportunities.
We represent all types of interests and companies — from small online startups to well-established concerns preparing for their initial public offerings. Clients appreciate our highly responsive, personalized legal solutions, along with our multidisciplinary approach. In many instances, we serve as outside general counsel to support our clients’ daily business and legal needs.
