Set Your Business Up For Success From The Very Start
Whether you’re an early-stage startup or emerging company, we’ll work with you hand-in-hand to manage and negotiate agreements, financings and any other legal needs to help you grow confidently.
What Is Startup Law?
Startup and emerging company law is different from traditional corporate law. It requires attorneys to have knowledge of complex issues regarding entity structuring and formation, taxation, capital raising and securities law, as well as intellectual property protection. Partnering with a firm that practices in these areas allows startups to outsource their legal needs to experts who have this extensive knowledge and experience, without having to bring on in-house counsel. From negotiating the financing of a Seed round to managing intellectual property, startup lawyers have a broad range of legal knowledge to assist across your entire business.
The Help You Need, No Matter Your Size
Even the smallest startups deserve the top legal expertise. That’s why our team helps you become agile and efficient by adequately considering business risks, forming appropriate structures and tax planning, and helping you raise capital when you need it.
