Venture Capital & Private Equity

We regularly represent angel, venture capital, and private equity investors in their negotiations with companies, and vice versa, representing companies in their negotiations with venture capital investors. We review private placement memoranda for accredited investors to confirm offered investments are "market." Our transactional experience ranges from research and development partnerships and "seed" financings through convertible debt, bridge, and later preferred equity and mezzanine financings. Our extensive involvement on both sides of the private equity table assures that our clients receive the creative, intelligent and practical experience required in structuring intricate financial arrangements.

We regularly advise clients on a wide variety of commercial and business law matters, including the formation of corporations, partnerships, limited liability companies and joint ventures; licensing, distribution and supply arrangements, credit and financing arrangements (representing both borrowers and creditors); intellectual property matters and executive compensation and other employee-related matters. Many of our clients often rely on us as their outside general or special counsel. We continuously strive to provide creative, practical legal solutions to our clients’ business needs.
