Emerging Companies and Venture Capital

Our attorneys have represented venture capital firms and other private equity investors as well as a large number of venture capital-backed businesses in a wide range of industries, such as biotechnology, high technology, the Internet, nanotechnology and green energy. Our attorneys understand the venture capital process and have significant experience with the documentation involved in venture capital financings. We appreciate the standards by which venture capitalists assess investments, the types and terms of securities involved, and the dynamics of multi-investor groups.

Advising entrepreneurs in the formation, growth and maturation of new companies is a cornerstone of our practice. We have represented emerging growth companies in all types of financings, both private and public, including Private Investments in Public Equity (PIPEs). Through our representation on the investor side, we gain continual insight into the changing criteria venture capitalists are utilizing in their analysis of opportunities. This allows us to provide industry-savvy business advice to our clients, as well as skilled legal service in closing deals.
